ptfe-specsPTFE is an amazing material. Its wide range of properties include outstanding chemical resistance, a continuous working temperature range of -260deg C to +260deg C, a low coefficient of friction and to- tal UV resistance. It has excellent insulation properties and is suitable for use with food. Used for seals, gaskets, o-rings, valve seats and linings (chemical). The addition of fillers such as glass, car- bon and bronze can further enhance the properties of PTFE.
