1. It can be used as anti-corrosion material in chemical industry, and can produce various anti-corrosion parts, such as pipes, valves, pumps and pipe fittings. For chemical equipment, lining and coating of reactors, distillation towers and anti-corrosion equipment can be made.
2. Mechanically, it can be used as self-lubricating bearing, piston ring, oil seal and sealing ring. Self-lubricity can reduce wear and heat of machine parts and reduce power consumption.
3. For electronic appliances, it is mainly used to manufacture various wires and cables, battery electrodes, battery separators, and printed circuit boards.
4. Among medical materials, it can be used as a material for various medical instruments and artificial organs by utilizing its heat-resistant, water-resistant and non-toxic properties. The former are such as sterilizing filters, beakers, artificial heart and lung devices, and the latter are artificial blood vessels, heart and esophagus.
Compared with other plastics, PTFE tube has the characteristics of chemical resistance, and it has been widely used as sealing material and filling material.
