PTFE, also known as Teflon, is a non-toxic thermoplastic that is being used in many industries. PTFE has one of the lowest frictional coefficients of 0.10 as compared to any other plastic. PTFE also maintain high strength, toughness and flexibility at temperature below zero degree celcius. Due to its excellent properties, it is commonly used for wiring in aerospace and computer applications.
Low frictional coefficient
High strength and toughness
Superior chemical and thermal properties
Subject to creep
PTFE is widely used in aerospace, IT, electronics and mechanical industry. PTFE’s dielectric properties allow it to be a good material for insulation of cables, connector and printed circuit boards (PCB). Its high melting temperature makes it a good substitute for other lower temperature plastic in thermal related projects. For other industrial application, PTFE are often used to make bearings, gear or slide plates due to its low frictional properties.
