PTFE Material Properties - Polytetrafluoroethylene

PTFE Material Summary

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is most commonly known under the trade name Teflon® for its lubricity and resistance to chemicals and heat. It is commonly used for chemical storage and transport due to its chemical resistance and or in any applications where heat and friction are important factors such as specialised tubing.
