PTFE Materials & Porous PTFE Plastic Polymer

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a versatile polymer used in a broad range of medical, industrial, and high technology applications. Porous PTFE is inert, making it unreactive to most chemicals, and, it can work in high processing and operating temperature environments (500°F / 260°C continuous). Porex porous PTFE offers excellent thermal, electrical, mechanical, and chemical properties as […]

Polymer Compounding

Polymer Compounding

In a majority of instances, the polymer formed in the reaction is modified to fabricate a particular product, or to suit the needs of a customer who will use the product for a very specific application. As mentioned earlier, compounding is often a multi-step operation that can occur partially or wholly once the resin has […]
