PTFE Index

PTFE - an acronym for Polytetrafluoroethylene - is a high molecular weight polymer, one of the most versatile plastic materials known and useful for a large range of products for applications excluded to other materials. Commonly referred to as Teflon - PTFE has extremely low coefficient of friction

Main properties of our range of PTFE sheet, rod and tube are:

  • high heat resistance
  • high resistance to chemical agents and solvents
  • high anti adhesiveness
  • high dielectric properties
  • low friction coefficient
  • non-toxicity.

PTFE is generally considered a thermoplastic polymer; at 327°C it maintains a very high viscosity, thus requiring particular transformation techniques for manufacturing of finished and semi-finished goods.

PTFE can be used at any temperature from -200°C to +260°C
