Engineering thermoplastics have developed into a major and still growing family of raw materials, which demonstrate in-place benefits and have proved themselves cost-effective in operation. The benefits compared with metal include high strength-to-weight ratios, good corrosion resistance, electrical and thermal properties and low co-efficients of friction. PTFE is a tough, flexible engineering thermoplastic with outstanding electrical and chemical resistance. It is stable from -250°C to 250°C. Incredible strength and almost chemically inert PTFE also has the lowest co-efficient of static and dynamic friction of any known solid.
Typical Applications:

  • Slide plates/pipes
  • Slip plates
  • Wear plates
  • Chemical / electrical and nuclear engineering
  • Sleeving to pipes, tanks, valves and pumps


  • Exceptional wear resistance
  • High impact strength
  • Good flexural strength
  • Easily machined
  • Good cryogenic operating temperature
