PTFE represents one of the best chemical resistant plastics currently available.
Smiths Advanced Metals stocks PTFE plastic bars in various sizes, shapes and colours.
There are few solvents on the market today that can dissolve PTFE plastic at room temperature. PTFE's only real weakness is when the material is exposed to high energy radiation. Under such conditions, the radiation causes the PTFE molecule to break down. Apart from this, only fluorine and alkali metals in dissolved or liquid form will attack PTFE. The material offers superb corrosion resistance characteristics in the most violent and corrosive media. PTFE finds extensive use in oil & gas applications as well as petrochemical. Valves and subsea connectors make great use of PTFE.
