PTFE application in high frequency technology
Due to its outstanding electrical properties, PTFE is used extensively in high-frequency technology. The very low dielectric constant of 2.1 and the dielectric loss factor of tan δ < 0.0001 enable the material to be used as a transmitting and receiving antenna in radar and microwave equipment.
In combination with other properties – such as universal chemical resistance to acids and alkalis and resistance to ageing – PTFE is very well suited for use as a signal transmitter and receiver in tanks, but also outdoors in radio and radar systems.
Moulded, solid and intricate components made of PTFE guarantee the functional and economic requirements in the high-frequency sector. With Beichler + Grünenwald's precise machining technology, our parts are made with the highest precision.
