All of our PTFE seals are manufactured within our UK base which gives complete control and flexibility to support almost any demand.
We are experts in PTFE solutions and we have the ability to produce a whole range of PTFE seals, including rod seals, backup rings, o rings and many more. Whether it is a seal for a standard application, or you require a custom solution, we have the expertise to deliver a seal for your project.
Our experience working with PTFE means we can advise you on the best grade to use for your application. We work with over 500 grades of materials and can even create a bespoke material that meets your needs.
There are a number of benefits to using PTFE that make it the ideal material for sealing applications:
- Low Friction: Due to the fact PTFE seals don't suffer from any stick/slip effect, it is an ideal material for use in dynamic sealing applications, This low friction characteristic also makes it the ideal choice for high-speed dynamic applications as heat build-up through friction is minimal.
- Wide Operating Temperature Range: One of the main advantages of using PTFE for seals is the wide operating temperature range, –70 to +250 °C (–95 to +480 °F), meaning it has a high melting point and the unique ability to resist thermal degradation.
- Chemical Resistance Characteristics: Another key benefit of using seals made from PTFE is the chemical resistance of PTFE means they cannot be dissolved by any solvent at room temperature.
- Adaptability: The addition of various fillers can alter some or all of these properties and can be adjusted to achieve desired physical properties to suit applications making our range of PTFE seals and materials extremely flexible.
