PTFE Sheets & Rods exhibit astonishing chemical resistance. PTFE is a self-lubricating material that provides a low friction coefficient, and is ideally suited for the manufacture of corrosion-resistant gaskets & seals. PTFE stands for PolyTetraFluoroEthylene, it is a fluorocarbon-based polymer. The Teflon® brand of PTFE is resin manufactured only by DuPont. Several other manufacturers make their own brands of PTFE which can often be used as substitute material. We offers various brands of PTFE, but mechanical grade PTFE (as sold here) is a reprocessed grade that may contain a variety of brands in the overall blend. The mechanical properties and purity of Mechanical Grade PTFE may also be lower than Virgin Grade PTFE. Mechanical Grade PTFE is supplied without warrantee or any gaurantees regarding minimal properties. Customers requiring material certifications and traceabilty should consider VIRGIN PTFE made from Dyneon or Daiken resins, or Chemours® PTFE (formerly DuPont Teflon®) specialty grades such as Chemours® 7A, Chemours® 7C, Chemours® 8A or Chemours® 9B - Chemours® PTFE Teflon® specialty grades are available as a custom order only and are priced higher than Generic Virgin PTFE Shapes - Lead-Time Will Apply.
Chemours® PTFE (fomerly Teflon®) is a registered trademark of Chemours (formerly E.I. du Pont de Nemours).
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Benefits of PTFE Sheets & Rods
Lowest coefficient of friction of any known material.
Operates up to 500F and has Superior Chemical Resistance
Excellent Insulating properties
Limitations: Very Low Compressive & Tensile Strength (Virgin PTFE is better).
Mechanical PTFE is produced in a maximum thickness of 0.250" - for thicker sheets, use VIRGIN PTFE
Mechanical PTFE is NOT for high-purity applications - Made from Recycled PTFE resin.
