INTRODUCTION TO PTFE
PTFE is the abbreviation for Polytetrafluorethylene but more widely known under its brand name "Teflon". (In case you are looking for Teflon FEP, please click here).
PTFE only consists of carbon and flourine atoms which makes it highly inert due to the strong bonds of flourocarbons. Furthermore, PTFE has one of the lowest coefficient of friction, has a LOI of over 95 and can be applied in a wide range of continuous operating temperature (-200°C up to 250°C). Those characteristics enable PTFE to be used as a coating in for example cookware or medical applications.
