Flouroplastics

(PTFE, PVDF (Kynar®, Solef®), Rulon®, FEP, ETFE, Tefzel®, PCTFE Kel-F®, Neoflon™ CTFE)

A class of parraffinic polymers with some or all of the hydrogen replaced with flourine.

Key Features:
Excellent chemical resistance, low coefficient of friction and high wear, high and low temperature resistance
-400 F to 500 F, resistance to weathering,
good electrical properties.

Applications:
Food equipment, high purity semiconductor processing, chemical processing equipment, nuclear waste processing, seals, piston rings, gaskets, bushings, bearings, slide bearings.

Fabricating:
Machines easily, hard to bond.

Specifications Met:
PTFE meets FDA/USDA/Dairy 3A (natural resin), PVDF meets FM4910.

Special Grades:
PTFE – excellent chemical resistance, lowest coefficient of friction, Wide temperature range -400 F to 500 F (-240 C to 260 C), Excellent thermal and electrical insulation properties. Fillers added to improve strength (ex. glass, carbon, bronze)
PVDF – (Kynar ® , Solef ®, temperature range -80 F to 300 F ( -62 C to 149 C) better Mechanical properties than other flouroplastics but not as Slippery, chemical resistant and electrically insulating.
FEP – flouinated eheylene propylene lower temperature 400 F and not as slippery. Better clarity than other flouroplastics. Rulon ® filled PTFE multiple fillers can improve strength and lower coefficient of friction.
ETFE – tefzel ® greater strength and stiffness than PTFE,FEP and PFA and excellent impact strength, temperature continuous 300 F
PCTFE – KEL-F® polychlorotrifluoroethylene temperature range – 400 F to 300 F, High compressive strength, low deformation under load, Low gas permeability, low flammability and zero moisture absorption, High optical transparency.
