PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene and is known for being one of the most versatile plastics available. PTFE can be used for a wide range of applications and products.

 

PTFE MATERIALS Tailored to your requirements

AFT Fluorotec can offer moulded rods and tubes of PTFE and PTFE compounds such as carbon, glass, bronze, stainless steel and polymer filled materials, from 5mm diameter to 1000mm diameter. Our PTFE moulding shop is purpose built, and houses the moulding presses, and PTFE sintering ovens.

  • Our tooling is designed and procedures are controlled to ensure all materials processed have optimum physical properties for the particular PTFE grade or compound.
  • We have developed our own “AF” range of filled PTFE compounds, with in-house moulding capability up to 1000mm diameter.
  • All materials manufactured or supplied by us are fully certified and tested.
  • We take great care to ensure that materials are of the highest quality, through careful processing techniques and quality control.

PTFE MATERIALS - DATA SHEETS
AF001 Virgin PTFE 303kb

PTFE is one of the most chemically inert materials known. It is used in many different applications and industries.

AF103 25% Glass Filled PTFE 296kb

Glass fibre is the most commonly used filler in PTFE. It gives much improved compression and wear properties. The material may also be inert gas sintered to further improve creep properties and reduce porosity would be a consequent loss of tensile properties.

AF402 40% Bronze Filled PTFE 188kb

The addition of Bronze to PTFE gives better dimensional stability and lowers creep, cold flow and wear. It increases hardness and compressive strength whilst also increasing thermal and electrical conductivity.

AF207 15% Carbon Filled PTFE 183kb

Carbon filled PTFE has excellent compressive strength, wear and chemical resistance. It provides good thermal conductivity and low permeability. An ideal material for dynamic sealing applications.

AF201 25% Carbon Filled PTFE 294kb

The addition of Carbon Fibre to PTFE increases the compressive strength and wear resistance. It provides good thermal conductivity and low permeability. Commonly used in sealing applications.

AF616 Stainless Steel Filled PTFE 252kb

The addition of Stainless Steel to PTFE gives better dimensional stability and lowers creep, cold flow and wear. It increases hardness and compressive strength whilst also increasing thermal and electrical conductivity.

AF106 Molybdenum Disulphide and Glass Fibre Filled PTFE 260kb

Glass fibre is the most commonly used filler in PTFE. It gives much improved compression and wear properties. The addition of Molybdenum Disulphide greatly improves the materials self lubrication properties particularly in dynamic sealing applications.

AF213 Anti-Static PTFE 273kb

PTFE With a special conductive filler to produce an anti-static material.
