Porous PTFE Plastic Polymer

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a versatile polymer used in a broad range of medical, industrial, and high technology applications. Porous PTFE is inert, making it unreactive to most chemicals, and, it can work in high processing and operating temperature environments (500°F / 260°C continuous). 146 more words


About PTFE's Physical Properties

The structure of PTFE molecules

PTFE, poly(tetrafluoroethene), is made by polymerising lots of tetrafluoroethene molecules.

This simple diagram for PTFE doesn’t show the 3-dimensional structure of the molecule. 1,517 more words
