AMILON™ Custom PTFE Compounds

AMILON Custom PTFE Compounding

Custom PTFE solutions to meet critical needs

With a focus on customer responsiveness and short lead times, our AMILON™ family of custom PTFE products can incorporate a wide range of fillers including glass, graphite, molybdenum disulfide or bronze, and are easily identified by their distinct colors, including the FDA-approved, white AMILON™ 3. Our applications engineers are available to help you identify the materials that best meets your specific application needs.

AMILON™ PTFE products are useful when high-performance characteristics for thermal conductivity, coefficient of friction, compressive strength, wear rate, creep or cold flow are required. They can withstand temperature extremes from -400ºF (-240ºC) to 500ºF (260ºC) and offer excellent abrasion and corrosion resistance.

We offer a wide range of standard formulations, but sometimes an “off the shelf” polymer just won’t do. In those cases, our applications engineers will work with you to develop a custom compound to meet your critical application needs. Custom compounds can be developed for specific performance characteristics in the areas of thermal conductivity, coefficient of friction, compressive strength, wear rate, creep and cold flow.
