Introduction

Fluoroplastics, also known as PTFE, or FEP, PFA, CTFE, ECTFE, ETFE, has been mass-produced since 1950.
  - It is a thermoplastic polymer.
- Applications: PTFE is commonly used in applications needing excellent dielectric strength and chemical and temperature resistance.
- General properties: It has low mechanical strength and is expensive. It has very low coefficient of friction.
- Trade Name: Teflon.
