What is PTFE?


PTFE is Polytetrafluoroethylene

But what is PTFE? PTFE is the original fluoropolymer
Accidentally discovered by Roy Plunkett in 1938 while working at a subsidiary of DuPont seeking a refrigerator gas for white kitchen appliances.
The properties of PTFE make it usable in various applications such as non-stick cookware, sealing tape and chemical coatings. PTFE is not melt procesable and so cannot be extruded with conventional extrusion technology.


PTFE has the following properties:


  • Great non-stick properties
  • Great chemical inertness
  • Withstands temperatures up to 250 ° C
  • Low dielectric constant
  • Weather Resistance
