APT's expertise extends beyond Teflon™ PTFE to include a variety of engineering & advanced performance plastics.
Fluoropolymers and engineering plastic materials we regularly CNC machine & compression mold include:
Fluoropolymers, Virgin Grades:
- Teflon™ PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), Modified PTFE, NXT, & PCTFE (KEL-F®) for excellent dielectric properties and chemical resistance, low friction, & broad operating temperature ranges.
PTFE Compounds - Filled PTFE:
- PTFE compounds consist of a virgin base PTFE resin compounded with particular percentages of added fillers such as glass fibers, mineral, 316 stainless steel, bronze, carbon, graphite, molybdenum disulfide. PTFE compounds also include blended combinations such as carbon-glass filled PTFE.
- PTFE fillers can be added in small amounts to create color or speckles for easier part identification purposes. In order to do so, the filler must be compatible with your end use.
- Acetal, Delrin AF, Nylon, ULTEM® PEI, Tivar® 1000 UHMW PE, Acrylic, Polypropylene, Rexolite, Torlon® PAI, PEEK.
