Teflon (polytetrafluoroethylene or PTFE) is a synthetic molecular weight fluoropolymer derived from the synthesis Tetrafluoroethylene (TFE) .which developed and registered by Du Pont de Nemours in 1938. Polytetrafluoroethylene (Teflon or PTFE) discovered during cold research
The importance and complexity of the properties of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) were immediately recognized by American scientists for gaskets and seals of chemical-exposed environments. For this reason, the discovery of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) was not disclosed until the end of World War II, and industrial production began in 1950. The age of fluoropolymers began with the discovery of polytetrafluoroethylene (Teflon or PTFE).
Teflon (PTFE) can be modified using a variety of techniques such as extrusion, compression molding and isostatic molding.
The unique properties of PTFE have led to its successful growth for use in a variety of industrial environments, and it is used as a solution to high technological challenges.
The following compounds are available in sheets, bars and tubes:
