PTFE is a fluorocarbon-based polymer. It
offers high chemical resistance, low and high temperature
capability, resistance to weathering, low friction,
electrical and thermal insulation, and ultrahigh purity
combining with self-lubricating "slipperiness". PTFE’s
mechanical properties are low compared to other plastics, but
its properties remain at a useful level over a wide
temperature range of -73°C to 204°C. . PTFE is very dense and
cannot be melt processed - it must be compressed and
sintered to form useful shapes.
PTFE's mechanical properties can be enhanced by adding
fillers such as glass fibres, carbon, graphite, molybdenum
disulphide, and bronze. Generally, filled PTFE's maintain
their excellent chemical and high temperature
characteristics, while fillers improve mechanical strength,
stability, and wear resistance.
