AFT Fluorotec can manufacture a wide range of components using our USP Class VI PTFE compliant material.
PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) is an extremely hard-wearing material used for a wide variety of applications and is well-known for its non-stick properties.
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.
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...
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.
The importance of high-quality valve seats can't be over-emphasised since failure can be costly.
The UK manufacturing economy has seen its fair share of ups and downs in recent years. Throughout this time of turbulence, AFT Fluorotec has stayed committed to keeping all of its manufacturing at home. There are a number of reasons that we...
