Thermostable polymer considered one of the most versatile within the thermoplastic materials causing one of its main characteristics is its high resistance to high temperatures.
Considered one of the most stable thermoplastic materials since at 260 ° C it preserves its properties without showing any decomposition, since its coefficient of thermal conductivity does not vary with changes in temperature, making it an ideal insulator.
PTFE is resistant to most chemical agents and solvents, thanks to which it is widely used both in construction and industry, it is attacked by alkaline metals by chlorine and fluorine trifluoride.
Resistant to atmospheric conditions and light since pieces of PTFE can be exposed for more than 20 years to extreme climatic conditions without having alterations in their properties.
The PTFE for it’s extraordinary non-stick properties, resistance to chemicals, extreme temperatures and for having the lowest coefficient of friction with respect to any solid substance, offers numerous applications in all types of industry, especially in the paper, chemical, oil, electrical, nuclear, metallurgical, pharmaceutical, food, among others.
