Modified PTFE

Teflon™ NXT 85 PTFE: Ultra-Pure & Improved Properties over Virgin Grade PTFE for Demanding Applications

Modified PTFE is a chemically modified version of PTFE that has new capabilities in addition to the property characteristics consistent with virgin PTFE material.

Modified PTFE - NXT 85 Valve Body

Modified PTFE has these new or improved characteristics over standard PTFE:

  • Part surfaces are smoother, and less porous - components stay clean since they are less likely to trap contaminants
  • Low micro-void content yields improved permeation resistance
  • Longer flex life than PTFE
  • Increased stiffness & improved creep resistance
  • Higher dielectric strength yields superior high-voltage insulation
  • Fusible / Weldable (Utilizing various heat welding techniques with moderate pressure)
  • Examples of Containers & Tubes created using APT's Modified PTFE Fusing & Machining Processes

NXT 85 Modified PTFE properties at a glance:

Tensile Strength: 4000-4500 psi
Elongation at Break: 400-450%
Specific Gravity: ~2.16 - 2.18
Dielectric Strength, 76.2 um (.003 in) Film: 208 kV/mm (5,200 V/.001 in)
