PTFE Material characteristics
PTFE = Polytetrafluorethylene
PTFE is excellently suited as a construction material for the chemicals industry. It temperature resistance ranges from -190 °C
to +250 °C, and it can temporarily sustain temperatures of +300 °C. Because of its low friction coefficient, it is used as an anti-friction coating and lubrication material. Because of its particularly high insulation resistance and puncture resistance, it can also be used for insulation purposes.
Another specific characteristic of PTFE is its extremely anti-adhesive property. As a result of its non-stick effect, no substances adhere to PTFE surfaces. PTFE is non-flammable, does not absorb water and is physically harmless to humans. PTFE is considered to be a member of the thermoplastics group, although it is not suitable for injecting or pouring.
PTFE is resistant to nearly all chemicals. It is only susceptible to chlorine trifluoride, elementary fluoride and melted alkali metals. Additionally, PTFE will not swell or dissolve in any common organic and inorganic solvent, even at high temperatures. It belongs to the group of weather-resistant plastics.
