Engineering Plastics: Teflon (PTFE)

The properties of PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) derive from its chemical structure, consisting of a bond of carbon and fluorine. PTFE is also known as an almost universal chemical resistance. The low co-efficient of friction as well as minimal abrasion wear create an excellent material for sliding applications. Additionally, PTFE will operate consistently within harsh UV and extreme heat environments, including temperatures up to 260°C. PTFE also has excellent electrical properties, allowing use within high voltage applications. PTFE is a physiologically inert material. Physiologically Inert materials are too dense to absorb bacteria or liquid, preventing it from expanding or contracting. As a result, PTFE is excellent for applications within the food or beverage industry.

With our workshop in Brisbane (QLD), Tynic is able to machine components efficiently and with minimal tolerances.
