Details about PTFE

PTFE stands for PolyTetraFluoroEthylene, the most inert polymer known. Chemically, it consists of a polymer chain ‘backbone’ of carbon with fluorine bonds. These bonds are exceptionally strong and are the reason for PTFE’s exceptional resistance to UV, chemicals, etc. PTFE is commonly used in very low (cryogenic) temperatures, as well as very high temperatures in a wide variety of industrial, pharmaceutical, medical and consumer products. PTFE is considered part of a larger family of ‘fluoropolymers’
