PTFE Compounds
Quality and Consistency in Innovative Compounded Materials


PTFE COMPOUNDS, INC., backed by more than 30 years’ experience in the industry, was formed to meet the demanding need for quality and consistency in compounded materials, not only within lots, but from lot to lot as well. Their large capacity blending equipment enables them to offer billet quantities up to 1200 pounds. They provide a homogenous filled compound that ensures uniformity and stripe free skived sheet. Two examples which show the strength of their innovation are TUFFSHEET and PCI Bearing Compound 213.


TUFFSHEET is a new proprietary blend of DuPont Kevlar® and Teflon®, which combines the properties of these materials into a durable low wear composite with reduced deformation and creep resistance. TUFFSHEET is suitable for a wide range of applications such as bushings, dry bearings, thrust washers, dry air compressor rings, gaskets, o-rings, rollers, and wear strips. TUFFSHEET product is available as a low flow compression molding powder, as skived sheet, rolled slit strips, wear-strip (with or without adhesive backing), and CNC machined parts made to customer  specifications.
