Benefits of PTFE rod

2018-05-29

PTFE rod is a kind of material Formed by mould pressing, paste extrusion or plunger extrusion, PTFE rod is used for processing into gaskets, seals and lubricating materials that work in corrosive media, and electrical insulating parts used at various frequencies.

There are two types of PTFE rod, push rods and molded rods. Among the known plastics, PTFE has the best chemical resistance and dielectric properties, and can be used at temperatures of -180°C to +260°C. , And with the lowest friction coefficient, mainly applicable to some long products and non-standard mechanical parts: seals, gaskets, ring material, wear plate, seat, insulation parts, corrosion resistance industry, mechanical parts, lining, Oil and gas, and so on.


Application of PTFE rods

Chemicals: Can be used as anti-corrosion materials, it can create a variety of anti-corrosion parts, such as pipes, valves, pumps and pipe fittings. For chemical equipment, linings and coatings for reactors, distillation towers and anti-corrosion equipment can be produced.

Mechanical: can be used as self-lubricating bearings, piston rings, oil seals and seals. Self-lubrication reduces machine wear and heat and reduces power consumption.

Electrical and electronic aspects: mainly used for the manufacture of various wire and cable, battery electrodes, battery separators, printed circuit boards and so on.

Medical material: It can be used as a material of various medical instruments and artificial organs by utilizing its heat-resistant, water-resistant and non-toxic properties. The former include sterile filters, beakers, artificial heart-lung devices, and the latter such as artificial blood vessels, heart, and esophagus. Has been widely used as a sealing material and filler material.
