This is a highly slippery material with excellent resistance to extreme temperatures. It has outstanding insulating properties and is resistant to industrial chemicals. Due to its low coefficient of friction, it is widely used in the production of gears, bushings, slide plates, piston rings etc. Teflon’s density and stiffness gives it easy machinability. However, its high coefficient of expansion and stress creep make it difficult to obtain tight tolerances.
Slippery • Resistant to extreme temperatures • Low friction, thermal and electrical insulator
