Since its discovery nearly 80 years ago, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), has become one of the world’s most versatile and useful materials. Originally used for military applications, it can now be found in many other applications, such as a non-stick coating for cookware.
Technetics Group’s AMILOY® PTFE and PEEK materials (grades 6, 9, 10, 15, 16, 21, 23) have passed the requirements of API 6A “Specification for Wellhead and Christmas Tree Equipment” section F1.13.5.2.
Choosing the correct seal or bearing material for a rotary or reciprocating system is critical to the smooth operation and longevity of equipment. Rotating and reciprocating seal and bearing integrity failures can be caused by aggressive chemical exposure, inadequate lubrication, or thermal overload of the component material.
As one of the leading dielectric materials used for insulation in aerospace electric wire and cable, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) has excellent dielectric constant, low dissipation factors, wide service temperature range, and high frequency stabilities.
In today’s highly competitive, global marketplace, companies are moving into higher value-added chemicals and materials.
Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is an ideal material for semiconductor fluid handling applications. It is inherently inert because it is composed of only carbon and fluorine atoms. This carbon fluorine bond is one of the strongest known.
Since its discovery in 1938, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) has revolutionized the progress of modern man, as did the discovery of fossil fuels. PTFE has opened new doors for significant advancements in a variety of different technologies.
