Teflon

Corrosion resistant material with exceptional thermal properties

Why choose Teflon?

  • Nonflammable
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Chemical resistance
  • High dielectric strength
  • FDA approved and USDA certified
  • Excellent weathering properties

What are some common Teflon applications?

  • Chemical processing components
  • Electrical components
  • Steel processing components

Machined parts made from PTFE provide exceptional chemical, electrical and thermal properties. Teflon components are almost totally unaffected by chemicals, and have among the lowest dielectric constant and dissipation factor of any plastic. With 500F continuous use temperature resistance,  properties are essentially constant throughout the operating temperature range with high surface and volume resistivity. PTFE has among the lowest coefficient of friction of any plastic making a great material for wear applications. Low water absorption with high flexibility and resilience to weathering make it a useful plastic for many applications. Teflon is not for structural applications as it is low strength. Teflon is expensive in comparison to other plastics, and has typical stock shape colors of black and white.
