The manufacture of PTFE BESTEFLON

The production process of PTFE mainly includes the following 4 major steps:

1. monomer synthesis

PTFE is a polymerization of tetrafluoroethylene (TFE) monomer polymerization of polymer compounds. monomer synthesis of TFE is the first step in the production process of PTFE. At present, the industry mainly uses electrolytic fluorination method to prepare TFE monomer, i.e., anhydrous hydrogen fluoride and ethylene under certain conditions for electrolysis reaction to generate TFE monomer.

2.Polymerization reaction

TFE monomer at a certain temperature and pressure, add catalyst and solvent, polymerization reaction. During the polymerization reaction, TFE monomer is continuously polymerized to form high molecular weight PTFE, the temperature, pressure, catalyst type and concentration of the polymerization reaction and other factors will affect the molecular weight, structure and properties of PTFE.


After the polymerization reaction is completed, post-treatment is needed to get pure PTFE products. Post-treatment mainly includes washing, drying, crushing, sieving and other steps to remove catalysts, solvents and other impurities to get pure PTFE resin particles.

4.Molding process

PTFE resin particles are molded under certain conditions to obtain the required PTFE products. Molding methods include extrusion, injection molding, calendering and so on, according to the different requirements of the products to choose the appropriate molding method. Molding process temperature, pressure, processing speed and other factors will affect the performance and quality of PTFE products.

Raw material of PTFE

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) resin was accidentally discovered by American scientists in the laboratory in 1936, and now the world can produce PTFE in less than 20 countries, most of which are developed countries. China in the 60s to master the production technology and realize the production, has become a large consumer of PTFE, in which the low-end products have been more than demand, but many high-end products still need to rely on imports from developed countries.

China's current PTFE raw materials and products are mainly imported from the United States, Japan, and European countries. Due to the transportation cost and supply cycle, China to import Japan's most common, and Japan's imports of PTFE products of good quality to meet the domestic demand for high-end.

According to the end-customer feedback, products in the mechanical strength of the actual application of working conditions, creep resistance and high and low temperature stability, imported materials are better than domestic materials.

Buying the right PTFE tubing is not only about choosing different specifications for different applications. More to choose a reliable manufacturer. Besteflon Fluorine plastic Industry Co., Ltd. specializes in the production of high-quality PTFE hoses and tubes for 20 years.
