PTFE - POLYTETRAFLUOROETHYLENE

General characteristics

PDF file More Info
PTFE is practically inert, does not react with other chemicals except in very specific situations. It is also one of the materials with the lowest coefficient of friction and this gives it an exceptional non-stick. Its discreet mechanical resistance is usually improved by incorporating glass loads, mineral salts (VX1), carbon / graphite, stainless steel, bronze, molybdenum bisulfide, etc., depending on the results to be improved.

hermal resistance: excellent behavior from -200 ºC a +260 ºC.

Atoxicity: inert material suitable for medical, pharmaceutical and food use, being able to meet the standards FDA, BgVV, and the USP Class VI.

Not porous: Non-stick to the vast majority of materials and adhesives, it is waterproof, ensuring perfect impermeability, with one of the lowest known coefficients of friction (0,01 the closest thing to ice).

Dielectric: It is a great electrical insulator, its dielectric constant is 2,1 and the power loss factor is 0,0002.

Atmospheric resistance: It has excellent weathering, ozone and radiation behavior UV.

Chemical resistance: resistant to the vast majority of chemical agents, greases and solvents.

(*) Factor P.V.: Load P (kg) per unit of sustaining surface (cm2) multiplied by linear velocity (m/s). It represents the maximum resistance of the compound with respect to the load and the speed (regardless of wear). (**) By adding a low percentage of conductive pigment, the volumetric resistivity and surface resistivity are reduced respectively to 2 x 103 and 103, without modifying other properties.
