Unfilled PTFE from Modern Plastics is a high molecular weight polymer, one of the most versatile plastic materials known and useful for a large range of products for applications excluded to other materials.
Its most outstanding characteristics are:
- high heat resistance
- high resistance to chemical agents and solvents
- high anti adhesiveness
- high dielectric properties
- low friction coefficient
PTFE is generally considered a thermoplastic polymer; at 327°C it maintains a very high viscosity, thus requiring particular transformation techniques for manufacturing of finished and semi-finished goods. PTFE can be employed at any temperature from -200°C to +260°C.
