PTFE – Polytetrafluorothylene Rod
The advantages of using a PTFE rod are those that are characteristic of the material. PTFE rods offer high chemical resistance, low and high temperature capability, weather resistance, low friction, electrical and thermal insulation, and “slipperiness”of parts if needed. The wear resistance of other materials and plastics can be considerably improved by using PTFE rods as a filler. It is dangerous when heated above 400°C and it may be hazardous while being machined if PTFE dust or shavings are exposed to extremely high temperatures.
