PTFE, more commonly known as Teflon®, is a high molecular weight thermoplastic sheet used mainly for high temperature, anti-stick applications and also bearings, slides, and other food grade components. Available in many modified grades, with the most common being a glass-filled grade to increase dimensional stability.
PTFE/Teflon® offers the following benefits:
High heat resistance (approx 650° F or 250° C)
Low coefficient of friction
