PE-CTFE PTFE is a subcategory of Fluoroplastics. The additative is added during the manufacturing process. Its tensile strength ranges from 6000 to 7000 MPa at break. Its elongation at break ranges from 200 to 300 %. Its hardness ranges from 93 to 95 Rockwell R. Its specific gravity ranges from 1.68 to 1.69. Its melting temperature ranges from 220 to 245 °C. 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. 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.
