PTFE Plastics, commonly recognized for their non-stick qualities in cookware, have a multitude of industrial uses. The exceptional chemical resistance, high and low-temperature durability, low coefficient of friction, and superb insulating properties of PTFE plastics make them a reliable choice for various industries. Despite its lack of toughness for abrasive applications, PTFE plastic can be improved with the addition of fillers such as glass fiber and carbon.
With a high heat tolerance of up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, it is a versatile material. However, bonding with adhesives can be difficult without etching the surface to accept the bonding agent. In addition to being used in various forms, PTFE plastic sheets offer a convenient and easily manageable option. Overall, they provide excellent performance and versatility for a wide range of industrial applications.
