Teflon® – PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene)

Benefits of Teflon® – PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene)

PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene, a fluorocarbon-based polymer) is also known by Dupont’s brand name Teflon®, and commonly used in its virgin (unfilled) state. Virgin PTFE is capable in its own right, but when mineral fillers, such as molybdenum sulfide, are added, it enhances the material wear and deformation characteristics to more fully exploit their unique combination of chemical, physical and electrical properties.  Teflon is often chosen for its smooth surface, low coefficient of friction, and surface energy characteristics.
