PTFE / TEFLON®

Polytetra-fluoro-etheylene ( PTFE ) exhibits astonishing chemical resistance. This self-lubricating material provides a low friction coefficient, and is ideally suited for the manufacture of corrosion-resistant gaskets & seals. One of the most chemically resistant materials available, PTFE also handles continuous service temperatures approaching 2500C
