Properties and Uses of Fluon® PTFE Micropowders
The unique combination of properties of PTFE are well known throughout industry due to its ability to resist nearly all chemical attack and operate between temperatures in the cryogenic range up to 260°C. Many non-industrial people will also be aware of PTFE through its prevalence as a non-stick coating for frying pans and other cookware.
Fluon® PTFE Micropowders are manufactured by controlled degradation of virgin PTFE fine powder or granules, and this allows them to be used in different ways in order to enhance the friction and wear properties of other materials.
