Granular PTFE is a subcategory of Fluoroplastics. The additative is added during the manufacturing process. Its elastic modulus ranges from 58 to 80 MPa. Its tensile strength ranges from 3000 to 5000 MPa at break. Its elongation at break ranges from 200 to 400 %. Its hardness ranges from 50 to 65 Shore D. Its specific gravity ranges from 2.14 to 2.2. Its coefficient of thermal expansion ranges from 70 to 120 x 10-6/°C. Its molding pressure ranges from 2 to 5 MPa.
Fluoroplastics, also known as PTFE, is a thermoplastic polymer. The most common trade name is Teflon. PTFE 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.
Other common Fluoroplastics (PTFE) include PTFE, 25% Glass Fiber Reinforced PTFE, PTFE, Unfilled PTFE, 20% Milled Glass Fiber PTFE, Unfilled Film PTFE, Filled Film PTFE, Molding and Extrusion PTFE, Wire and Cable Jacketing PTFE, 30% PAN Carbon Fiber EMI Shilding (conductive) PTFE, Unfilled PTFE, 25% Glass Fiber Reinforced PTFE, PTFE, PTFE, PTFE, and PE-CTFE PTFE.
