The development of technologies has helped to improve the properties of pure Teflon (PTFE) for various applications. Adding an appropriate amount of organic and inorganic fillers can improve some of the mechanical, chemical, thermal and electrical properties.
Up to 60% fillers can be added to Teflon (PTFE). The most common fillers are glass fibers, carbon, bronze, graphite and molybdenum disulfide.
Teflon (PTFE) does not easily enter the compound due to the neutrality of its chains. In fact, each filler must withstand temperatures above 400°C for several hours. This removes a lot of material alone.
Teflon compounds can be as follows:
