Teflon™ PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) granular fluoroplastics are ideal for compression molding a wide variety of components and shapes; such as rods, tubes and sheets. Products fabricated from genuine Teflon™ PTFE are unaffected by most chemicals and feature superior electrical, low friction and mechanical properties.
Products manufactured with genuine Teflon™ PTFE are rated for continuous service at 260°C (500°F).
Teflon™ PTFE granular fluoroplastic resins are considered non-melts and are generally converted to finished articles in a three step process. 1) The resin is compression molded into a shape form (rod, tube, sheet). 2) The shape, once removed from the mold, is then sintered above its melting point to form a solid PTFE billet. 3) The solid PTFE billet is then machined into the finished article.
Teflon™ PTFE granular fluoroplastics are also available in chemically modified grades (NXT). The modified Teflon™ NXT materials deliver valuable additional capabilities while retaining the exceptional chemical, thermal, and low-friction properties of conventional Teflon™ PTFE fluoroplastic resins.
Specifically, Teflon™ NXT granular fluoroplastics exhibit enhanced permeation resistance, a smoother less porous surface finish, improved bond strength and weldability, and improved dielectric breakdown strength.
