PTFE Rod is an extremely versatile engineering plastic that has many important performance advantages over other materials and has helped PTFE Rod become one of the most important engineering materials available at the moment.
Features of PTFE Rod
One key important advantage of PTFE Rod is its operating temperature range, it can easily out perform other engineering plastics by being able to perform continuously at -250°C, right up to an amazing 250°C. Another important advantage of PTFE Rod is its outstanding co-efficient of friction, PTFE is in the record books as having one of the lowest friction values known to man. PTFE also has excellent acid and chemical resistance. Another feature of PTFE is its ability to set by or due to compression. PTFE has excellent electrical resistance. PTFE is also water repellent and is often used in the manufacture of modern high performing, water repellent and breathable clothing.
