What Is Teflon
The chemical name of Teflon PTFE material is (Polytetrafluoroethene, abbreviated as PTFE), commonly known as the "King of Plastics", trademark name Teflon®, according to the needs of the use environment, Teflon also developed PVDF, PTFE, FEP, PFA, ETFE, NEW-PTFE, TFM several races, is a widely used fluorocarbon polymer.
PTFE has strong resistance in various temperature and frequency ranges, and is a very good material in various harsh environments. It is widely used in aerospace, aviation, medical, food, electronics, petrochemical, coal, automobile, textile, machinery... The products are used in special fields such as high strength fittings, seals, gaskets, valves, pump parts, wire insulators, insulated transformers, printed circuit boards, surface coatings, etc. The characteristics and application areas of each industry type are slightly different, but they are all used as excellent materials for stability, safety and durability.
PTFE products have excellent sliding characteristics, excellent electrical resistance and non-adhesive surfaces, and are among the lowest friction coefficient solids. It can also be used as a lubricant for joint surfaces to reduce friction and abrasion, making it an ideal coating for the inner layer of non-stick pots and pans and water pipes, as well as for various slides, transfer machines and rollers.
The mechanical strength of PTFE is slightly lower than that of other plastics, but with the addition of composite materials such as glass fiber, carbon fiber, or copper fiber, the mechanical properties can be effectively enhanced to perform optimally in various environments. PTFE has excellent temperature, chemical, and chemical resistance, with a melting point of 327°C, and can be used at temperatures as low as -170°C. It is an excellent temperature-resistant material. It does not react to concentrated sulfuric acid or boiling aqua regia, making PTFE and its group excellent materials for use in a variety of harsh environments.
