What does PTFE stand for | BESTEFLON

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), which is a kind of high molecular compound, has excellent chemical stability and corrosion resistance. It is one of the best corrosion-resistant materials in the world today. Except for molten sodium and liquid fluorine, it can withstand all other chemicals. It will not change after boiling in aqua regia. It is widely dispersed in a variety of materials that require resistance to acid, alkali and organic solvents) , Sealing, high lubrication and non-stick, electrical insulation and good anti-aging endurance, excellent temperature resistance (can work at a temperature of +250℃ to -180℃ for a long time). Now let’s take a good look at the various characteristics of this material and its application

PTFE hose is formed by compression or extrusion processing; it can also be made into water dispersion for coating, dipping or making fibers. Polytetrafluoroethylene is widely used in industries such as nuclear energy, national defense, aerospace, electronics, electrical, chemical, machinery, instruments, meters, construction, textiles, metal surface treatment, pharmaceuticals, medical treatment, textiles, food, metallurgy and smelting, etc. , Corrosion-resistant materials, insulating materials, anti-stick coatings, etc., making it an irreplaceable product. PTFE has outstanding excellent comprehensive properties, high temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, non-stick, self-lubricating, excellent dielectric properties, and a very low coefficient of friction. Used as engineering plastics, it can be made into PTFE tubes, rods, belts, plates, films, etc. Generally used in corrosion-resistant pipelines, containers, pumps, valves, radar, high-frequency communication equipment, and radio equipment with high performance requirements. By adding any filler that can withstand the sintering temperature of PTFE, its mechanical properties can be greatly improved. At the same time, other excellent properties of PTFE are maintained. Filled varieties include glass fiber, metal, metal oxide, graphite, molybdenum disulfide, carbon fiber, polyimide, EKONOL... etc. The wear resistance and limit PV value can be increased by 1000 times.

The PTFE hose is made of suspension polymerized polytetrafluoroethylene resin through plunger extrusion processing. Among the known plastics, PTFE has the best chemical resistance and dielectric properties. PTFE braided packing is a good dynamic sealing material. It is woven from expanded PTFE tape. It has excellent properties such as low friction coefficient, wear resistance, chemical corrosion resistance, good sealing, non-hydrolysis, and non-hardening. Used for gasket seals and lubricating materials working in various media, as well as electrical insulators used under various frequencies. Capacitor dielectric, cable insulation, electrical instrument insulation, etc. PTFE film is suitable for the insulation of capacitor dielectrics, special cables, wire insulation, electrical and instrument insulation and sealing gaskets. It can also be used as non-stick tape, sealing tape, and demoulding

General materials

Various rods, tubes, sheet films, belts, ropes, packings, gaskets, and graphite, molybdenum disulfide, aluminum oxide, glass fiber, and carbon fiber are used as fillers to improve the mechanical properties of pure PTFE


1. Hoses and fittings: pure PTFE hose; PTFE lined hose; wrapped glass steel pipe; steel composite flange;

2. Chemical container lining: PTFE lined kettle; PTFE lined tank; PTFE lined tower;
