Common uses: Electrical applications in aircraft, robots, electrical machines, gaskets, pipes, filters, self-lubricating bearings, coating in pans, foil, surface coating in chemical equipment, electrical insulation material, etc.
The benefits of PTFE applications
High chemical resistance.
Not attacked by acids, bases, and most organic solvents.
Withstands up to + 260 ° C continuously.
Tough at low temperatures down to -160 ° C.
Lowest friction of all plastics.
Not degraded by UV radiation.
Not attacked by microorganisms.
Good electrical and dielectric properties.
Exceptional water resistance.
The restrictions of PTFE + GF 15
High melt viscosity makes the material difficult to work with.
Poor creep resistance.
High density relative to other plastics.
Attacked by molten alkali metals, fluorine gas, oxygen difluoride, and chlorine trifluoride (except PTFE).
PTFE compound with 15% glass fiber has an improved creep resistance over all temperature ranges. This plastic allows some compression required for sealing in both gaskets and valves with little effect on the electrical properties. The 15% glass fiber functions as an insulator, has exceptional resistance to water and gives excellent chemical stability.
