PTFE Properties

PTFE, also known under the brand name Teflon, has the lowest coefficient of friction of any known solid material and melts between 260°C and 327°C. It’s fairly hard and fairly stiff too, so it’s ideal for parts including things low friction bushings to main assembly parts. Thermoplastics often swell just before they melt, so PTFE […]

PTFE Properties

PTFE resin is in a class of paraffinic polymers that have some or all of the hydrogen replaced by fluoride. The original PTFE resin was invented by DuPont in 1938 and called Teflon®. PTFE is a crystalline polymer with a melting point of about 621° F (327° C). Density is 2.13 to 2.19 gm/cc. PTFE […]
