Teflon™ PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) Properties & Information
PTFE is a performance thermoplastic known for its chemical resistance, low coefficient of friction, broad operating temperature range, & excellent dielectric properties.
We will be happy to discuss your application, and provide a copy of the Dupont Teflon™ PTFE Properties Handbook. This handbook includes mechanical, electrical, and thermal data useful for general design considerations and material selection. Please note that actual resin lot properties will differ from the data presented. Mechanical testing should be performed for critical applications. This guide provides a good, general starting point if you aren't familiar with PTFE properties.
