Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a polymer with an high molecular weight, composed of fluorine and carbon atoms, which make it one of the most versatile and recommended among the plastic materials. Often PTFE is produced with some fillers like bronze, carbon, glass fiber and so on…..The addition of filles help this material to improve its properties such as compression and tensile strength.
It is available on the market with different shapes (rods, tubes and sleeves). The choice of the format depends on customized part to be manufactured while the grade on the application and final use.
Due to its high mechanical features, it is recommended into different sectors: chemical, petrolchemical, hydraulic, pharmaceutical, food, automotive, valve components.
