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.

 

What we do

AFT Fluorotec produce moulded rods and tubes in PTFE and filled PTFE compounds such as but not limited to carbon, glass, bronze, stainless steel, polymer, mineral and graphite filled materials, from 5mm diameter to 1000mm diameter. We offer hundreds of special grades ex-stock with no minimum material commitment from our customers.

AFT Fluorotec Coatings offer PTFE coatings solutions suitable for applications ranging from bakeware to aerospace and we can also work with you to determine the ideal grade of PTFE to suit your requirements.

Sweet, Sweet PTFE Coatings
AFT Fluorotec Coatings recently worked with a manufacturer of confectionery processing equipment to help them coat the moulds for their equipment.

There are hundreds of different grades of PTFE

We will work with you to understand your project and recommend a grade of PTFE that's suitable for your application. Take a look at our fact sheets below to find out more.

AF001 Virgin PTFE

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

AF201 25% Carbon Filled PTFE

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.

AF402 40% Bronze Filled PTFE

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.

AF106 MoS 2 and Glass Fibre Filled PTFE

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.

AF103 25% Glass Filled PTFE

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.

AF207 15% Carbon Filled PTFE

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.

AF616 Stainless Steel Filled PTFE

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.

AF213 Anti-Static PTFE

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