PTFE

Service Overview

Polytetrafluoroethylene or PTFE is a particularly versatile ivory-white and opaque plastic fluoropolymer; it is made by the free-radical polymerisation of many tetrafluoroethene molecules, and is suitable for a wide range of applications in industries as diverse as aerospace, the food and drink industry, pharmaceuticals and telecoms.

PTFE is produced by AFT Fluorotec in rods or tubes of any size, or filled with glass, carbon, stainless steel or many other materials to increase wear resistance and strength, whatever your project or build, we are sure to have a material that will work for you.

Benefits

  • It is largely inert – this means it can be used to store reactive compounds or to line pipes that reactive agents will travel along.
  • It is an excellent electrical insulator – this is why it is often used on printed circuit boards and electrical cables.
