PTFE Bushings – Premium Virgin PTFE
Our Premium Virgin PTFE stands as an incredibly versatile material with an extensive range of applications. This remarkable material is recognized for its unparalleled chemical inertness, making it a sought-after choice across various industries. Whether in the form of PTFE bushings or PTFE thick wall tubes, Premium Virgin PTFE serves a multitude of purposes.
With its wide array of uses, PTFE proves to be an exceptionally adaptable material. It boasts remarkable resistance to chemicals, a broad temperature tolerance, imperviousness to UV radiation, and exceptional electrical insulation properties. Furthermore, it exhibits flexibility, inertness, and minimal friction.
The prominent characteristics of Premium Virgin PTFE are well-documented, emphasizing its remarkable chemical resistance, thermal durability, electrical insulation capabilities, and an exceedingly low friction coefficient.
Solid Premium Virgin PTFE bushings offer resistance to nearly all substances, except for fluorine, molten alkali metals, and halogens. They also exhibit exceptional sliding properties.
While Premium Virgin PTFE excels in numerous aspects, it may not be suitable for high mechanical loads due to its limited elasticity, vulnerability to cold flow, time-dependent plastic deformation (creeping), and weaker thermal conductivity compared to other materials. Additionally, it has a high coefficient of expansion and a limited load-bearing capacity as a substrate. It also has lower abrasive wear resistance.
For applications with low mechanical strain, pure PTFE seals are preferable. However, for higher mechanical demands, we offer a range of PTFE bushings with various fillers, such as bronze, Mos2, glass, stainless steel, graphite, and more. Choose the right solution that best suits your specific needs.
