PTFE is a synthetic fluoropolymer that is usually opaque or ivory white. It is made by free radical polymerization of multiple tetrafluoroethylene molecules. The excellent performance of PTFE makes it ideal for many different applications in pharmaceutical manufacturing as well as food and beverage processing.
Even if we keep a wide variety of PTFE tubing products, they can be manufactured in any size and shape. In addition, you can modify some of its strength and resistance characteristics.
If you are looking for materials that are resistant to high temperatures, chemical reactions and electricity, and also show very low coefficient of friction, you need PTFE.
PTFE has a very high melting point. However, its thermal stability is sufficient to use between a temperature of 260 degrees Celsius and -200 degrees Celsius. Fluoropolymers are also very insoluble in chemicals due to their chemical inert properties. It can withstand the harsh conditions caused by most acids and alkalis.
The most important benefits of Teflon include a variety of applications in different industries. In addition to tubing or handling chemicals, the versatility of this fluoropolymer makes it ideal for coating bearings, screws and any other sliding machinery.
Take PTFE coated screws as an example. It is able to repel oil and water, which is inherently lubricated by the coating, which makes it easy to drive to the surface. At the same time, the low coefficient of friction results in less wear and lasting surface.
Similarly, friction can be an important factor in the bearing. It can experience the same advantages as screws, and also benefit from special heat resistance. Long time heat resistance, while corrosion-resistant parts can extend the service life of the machine.
