PTFE - teflon

Compare material
Other material names PTFE: Murflor
Material group: 

PTFE has the lowest coefficient of all materials and is ideal in applications where lubricants are not desirable as PTFE functions without any lubricants. PTFE has the widest working temperature range of all plastics, from -260°C to 260°C. PTFE is excellent for use in cryogenic applications as shows no embrittlement. PTFE has very good sealing properties. PTFE is not flammable unless in 94% oxygen environment. PTFE is an excellent insulating material.  PTFE is not ideal in high wear abrasive applications or in high loading applications. Here filled PTFE is used to improve resistance to load and wear.
