PTFE Sheet and Rod

PTFE, FEP, PCTFE, PolyTetraflouoroEthylene



PTFE steam valve Fluoropolymers, like PTFE, offer excellent wear resistant, heat resistant and non-stick. PTFE is a thermoplastic polymer, which is a white solid at room temperature, and a density of about 2.2g/cm3. Material has extremely good chemical resistance. Retains properties over a large range of temperatures, -100ºF to 400ºF. Still not sure PTFE – TFE is the proper material for your application, consult our free Plastic Materials Selection Guide.

    • Very Slippery and Non-Stick
    • Wear Resistance
    • 500ºF Continuous Use Temperature
    • Excellent Chemical Resistance
    • Very Easy To Machine and Fabricate
    • PTFE Rod available from .125″ – 6.0″ as standard – larger sizes are molded per order
    • PTFE Sheet – Film from .005″ – 3.0″ thickness

    PTFE material is used frequently as a bearing or non-stick surface. Excellent choice for caustic fluid handling valves and fittings. Massive size range in molded rod, tubular bar, and plate. PTFE is also known as: Fluon®, Diakin®, Fluoroplastic®, Fluoropolymer®, Neoflon®, Polyfon®, Chemfluor®, and more.  
    • Chemically Resistant to Most Chemicals and Caustic/Acidic Cleaning Agents
    • Offers excellent strength, rigidity and machinability
    • Excellent Electrical and Thermal Insulation
    • Available in Wide Range Of Grades and Fillers

  • “To me, PTFE is kind of like solid wax. Easy to machine, super slippery, and nothing sticks to it. We love to machine parts for PTFE to tight tolerances. If you haven’t tried it, you should.” – Russell H. “As a manufacturer of oil and gas seals and gaskets, we find that we sometimes need an unusual size or shape. You always seem to find something close to what we are looking for. Thanks for the years of saving our bacon.” – Ryan S.

    I am look for FEP film (Fluorinated Ethylene-propylene film),do you know how can I find it?

  5. HaydenHH says:

    We can help you with your FEP inquiry. We would need to know the thickness of the film, and the desired width. The most common grade is the FG, but there are several available, please let us know the grade desired. Also, please indicate quantity needed as well.
    Thank you,

  6. [...] PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene), it’s a fluorocarbon-based polymer that exhibits astonishing chemical resistance and ultra high-wholesomeness. Self-lubricating with a minimal friction coefficient, PTFE sheets and rods are ideally suited to the output of high-temperature closes, insulators and bearings utilized in semiconductor, aerospace & chemical processing industries. Other producers make their very own brands of PTFE that are generally available on the market. Professional Plastics offers a multitude of PTFE materials including PTFE Sheets and Rods. [...]

  7. Do you carry any PTFE Rod materials, that have a temperature range of -40 to +600f?

    Thanks!

  8. HaydenHH says:

    Brian,
    The low temperature is easy for PTFE materials, but the upper temperature range is about 500f continuous. You may need to change to a different material to reach the 600f. Let us know what you are looking for, perhaps we can assist.
    Thanks.
