PTFE gaskets are ideal for applications involving corrosive media. The non-reactive properties of PTFE gasket materials ensure that gaskets made of these materials are completely protected from harmful gases, vapors, and fluids.
PTFE is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene with a wide range of uses. It combines excellent dielectric properties with a very low coefficient of friction and can work in a wide operating temperature range from -400°F to 500°F. The true strength of the PTFE gasket material is one of the most chemically resistant materials known.
PTFE is a thermoplastic member of the fluoropolymer plastic series. PTFE has a low coefficient of friction, excellent insulation properties, and is chemically inert to most materials. It can also withstand high temperature applications and is known for its anti-stick properties. Teflon is not an elastomer. In order to obtain the best performance, an appropriate load should be calculated. Produced, making them difficult to over-compress.
