PTFE Teflon

PTFE Teflon

Polytetrafluoroethylene, or PTFE, is the commonly used fluoropolymer. It is  made up for carbon and fluorine atoms. One of the common applications of this polymer is non-stick coating for kitchen cookware (pans, baking trays etc.), hence, you can easily find this in your kitchen.

Apart from being used in the kitchen, PTFE is used as a cost-effective solution for industries ranging from Food Processing and Packaging through to Oil & Gas, Chemical Processing, etc.

The basic properties of PTFE which make it an interesting material with high commercial value are:

  • Exception chemical resistance
  • Good resistance to heat and low temperature
  • Good electrical insulating power in hot and wet environments
  • Good resistance to light, UV and weathering
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Low dielectric constant/dissipation factor
  • Strong anti-adhesion properties
  • Flexibility
  • Good fatigue resistance under low stress
  • Availability of food, medical and high-purity grades
  • Low water absorption

There are many different types of PTFE Teflon coatings available, as it is not a case of 1 coating suits all applications. We have One Coat and Two-Coat (primer/topcoat) systems available to suit most applications.

The most typical applications for PTFE Teflon’s are:

• Tray and Thermoformer Sealing Plates
• HDPE/PE Welding Equipment
• Moulds
• Automotive Components
• Fasteners
• Filters
• Textile Rollers
• Aerospace Applications
