PTFE Compounds



For years, Flontech USA has specialized in the manufacturing of both standard and modified PTFE compounds. PTFE exhibits the best performance in terms of temperature resistance, chemical resistance, and non stick properties of the fluoropolymers. Modified PTFE is a chemically modified version of PTFE that yields a material that exhibits equivalent chemical resistance, increased tensile strength and greater elongation. Unlike virgin PTFE, conventional plastic techniques can be used to process this material such as thermal bonding and fusing modified PTFE to itself. When a filler or an assortment of fillers are integrated into PTFE, the result is known as a PTFE compound. Equipped with a wide assortment of capabilities such as base resin and filler refinement, reverse engineering, filler selection and pelletizing technology, Flontech USA successfully satisfies the needs of a distinguished customer base from diverse industries, including aerospace and medical.

The addition of certain fillers to PTFE will improve wear resistance, creep resistance, thermal conductivity and electric conductivity over virgin PTFE while preserving several properties unique to PTFE, including low coefficient of friction, excellent chemical resistance, and a very wide service temperature range. Offering the widest selection of PTFE fillers including, but not limited to, carbon, bronze, graphite and fiberglass, our compounds can be used for a broad range of applications such as sliding elements, ventilation, mechanical seals and medical devices. Flontech USA is determined to meet your compounding needs by utilizing any and all fillers in any combination and filler percentage. Our superior compounds offer many benefits including higher physical properties, superior finished parts, and processing advantages. We also offer various ranges of flow grades from non free flow to presintered. We encourage you to contact Flontech USA today and find out more about why we are the leaders in PTFE compounding technology.
