PTFE COATING BENEFITS

The main benefit of PTFE coatings (such as Teflon) is the non-stick properties of the material, which means applications such as commercial bakeware have excellent non-stick / release properties and are very easy to clean.


Selecting the right Seals

Find out more about our seal selector tool, which helps take away a lot of the wasted time and hassle looking for the right seal type and material for your project.


Engineering a Composite Seal for a Pharmaceutical Company

We were given the opportunity to manufacture and develop a PTFE and elastomeric seal for a pharmaceutical powder processing application. The seal it self was to be made from PTFE, which would then have a FDA compliant silicone rubber seal moulded onto it.


AN INTRODUCTION TO PTFE

PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) is an extremely hard-wearing material used for a wide variety of applications and is well-known for its non-stick properties.


Choosing the best PTFE filler for your application

PTFE can creep and deform under heavy loads, a disadvantage that can be avoided by adding a filler in order to benefit from the properties of both materials. Fillers can also add properties such as improved thermal conductivity, for applications that demand good heat dissipation.


The Benefits of 3D printing

In addition to subtractive manufacturing and our injection moulding capabilities, we can now offer additive manufacturing of parts and components through our new 3D printer.


USP Class VI Testing

AFT Fluorotec can manufacture a wide range of components using our USP Class VI PTFE compliant material.


SW Plastics Supply HPLC Equipment

HPLC is a technique in analytical chemistry used to separate, identify, and quantify each component in a mixture.


The History of PTFE

For nearly 80 years our everyday lives have been improved by a resin called polytetrafluoroethylene, or PTFE. Discovered completely by accident on 6th April 1938 by DuPont chemist, Dr. Roy Plunkett whilst trying to invent a better coolant gas. After leaving a...


The Properties and Advantages of PTFE

Polytetrafluoroethylene or PTFE (more commonly known as Teflon) is a particularly versatile ivory-white and opaque plastic fluoropolymer; it is made by the free-radical polymerisation of many tetrafluoroethene molecules, and is suitable for a wide range of applications in industries as diverse as aerospace, the food and drink industry, pharmaceuticals and telecoms.
