Unfilled PTFE is a subcategory of Fluoroplastics. The additative is added during the manufacturing process. Its flexural modulus ranges from 80 to 95 MPa. Its tensile strength ranges from 2700 to 3100 MPa at break. Its elongation at break ranges from 250 to 330 %. Its hardness ranges from 60 to 65 Shore D. Its specific gravity ranges from 2.12 to 2.17. Its molding pressure ranges from 5 to 20 MPa.
Fluoroplastics, also known as PTFE, is a thermoplastic polymer. The most common trade name is Teflon. fluorinated ethylene propylene It has low mechanical strength and is expensive. It has very low coefficient of friction. PTFE is commonly used in applications needing excellent dielectric strength and chemical and temperature resistance.
