PTFE coatings and linings
With properties like
- universal resistance to chemicals
- use from -200°C to +260°C
- lowest friction coefficient of all solids
- completely non-stick
- very good electrical insulation properties
PTFE offers almost unlimited potential applications. The material is used in the food industry, the pharmaceutical industry and medical technology, in the construction industry and mechanical engineering, in the automotive industry and aircraft construction as well as in electrical engineering. But that's just a small number of the potential applications.
PTFE is not only used in its natural colour, pure white. Special properties - such as high resistance to wear - are achieved by adding various products in varying processes. In this way, property profiles can be achieved which, for example, give the component a much longer service life than pure PTFE.
PTFE does not age, nor does it become brittle. In addition, no critical plasticisers are released and, as waste, the material does not harm the environment. Today, thousands of tons of PTFE waste undergo almost 100% separation into their original particles and, after a cleaning process, are again polymerised into high-quality PTFE.
