Mechanical and Plant Engineering

PTFE high-performance plastic for mechanical and plant engineering.

This is how designers in mechanical engineering and plant construction benefit from PTFE.

When designers in the fields of mechanical engineering and plant engineering develop new systems, in most of the cases they are driven by individual customer-specific requirements. In addition, longer durability and improved cost-of-ownership are constant drivers in the development and design of new systems and machines. PTFE opens up completely new paths for designers.

The universal chemical resistance and the possible use from -200 ° C to + 260 ° C predestine PTFE for use in the chemical as well as in the pharmaceutical and petroleum industries. PTFE is mainly used for the lining of pipelines, valves, fittings, columns and containers. Other uses are for column equipment and packing, for heat exchangers, for bellows etc. and for static and dynamic seals in a variety of ways.

PTFE materials science for designers:

PTFE is a relatively soft and tough material (Shore hardness D approx. 56 °). For this reason, PTFE reacts very insensitively to shocks and rapid temperature changes.

PTFE can be used from -200 ° C to + 260 ° C.

PTFE is long-lasting and has a unique non-stick property.

PTFE linings can be economically refurbished if necessary.

Thanks to its very low coefficient of friction, PTFE does not need any lubricants.

PTFE is ideal for plain bearings and slideway coverings.

The PTFE program has a broad diversity.

There is hardly an industry in which PTFE is not used. For designers and engineers, PTFE high-performance plastic is as inspiring as it is reliable.
