PTFE products (PTFE virgin)
PTFE virgin (polytetrafluoroethylene) is physiologically inert and may be used in direct contact with food (FDA). The material excels because of its wide temperature range and good resistance. The unique combination of material properties make our PTFE products applicable in the food industry, (petro) chemical industry and machinery and equipment industry. Ridderflex offers you a wide range of products. We always keep an ample stock of foil, sheeting, rods, tubes and cylinders.
Properties of PTFE products
PTFE is a fluoropolymer and has a number of special properties:
- High temperature resistance;
- Good chemical resistance;
- Particularly good non-sticking;
- Very low friction;
- 100% resistant to UV radiation and weather influences.
Polytetrafluoroethylene products are extensively applied in the medical industry, because the body does not absorb the material.
