PTFE Materials (Polytetrafluoroethylene), it is a low friction, soft fluoropolymer with superior quality chemical and weathering resistance. PTFE gaskets are made from 100% pure material is a thermoplastic products. That can withstand temperatures of up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit and is frequently used in high-temperature settings. The electrical insulating characteristics of PTFE Sheets are also good. PTFE slide bearings are widely used in construction and offshore sectors.
Unfilled, glass-filled, bearing and other formulations of PTFE Materials are available. PTFE Full Form Polytetrafluoroethylene is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene. PTFE is an exceptionally versatile substance with a wide range of uses, though it’s arguably best-known for its non-stick qualities.
It is hydrophobic, non-wetting, heavy and resistant to high temperatures. PTFE material is commonly used in industrial pipes and hose assemblies due to its non-reactivity and high-temperature tolerance.

Length, width, thickness, and diameter tolerances vary by size, by manufacturer, brand, and grade. Custom sizes available upon request. PTFE is also available in a tape, fabric, and tubing.
Virgin (Unfilled) Grade PTFE– Unfilled PTFE, made from virgin PTFE resin, is extremely soft and formable and it is often used for chemical resistant seals and gaskets.
Glass-Filled PTFE– Glass-filled PTFE has enhanced strength and stiffness.
Bearing Grades of PTFE– Bearing grades of PTFE have extremely low friction and high service temperatures. They are frequently specified for high performance bearings and bushings, particularly in applications that require resistance to corrosive chemicals.
Reprocessed PTFE– Reprocessed PTFE is made from recycled material.
Tech Tip– PTFE can be used at any temperature from -328°F (-200°C) to 500°F (+260°C)
