Comparison of common types of PTFE rods and their raw materials

- Jan 09, 2019-

A PTFE rod, which is a rod made of PTFE material, is called a PTFE rod. For this kind of rod, a comprehensive understanding and in-depth understanding is required to realize the correct and rational use of the product. Make full use of it, in order to achieve the purpose of use and avoid product waste.


1. Common types of PTFE rods

Tetrafluorocarbon rods, which have some common and commonly used types, are three types of PTFE rods, extruded PTFE rods and molded PTFE rods, and different types correspond to different diameter ranges, pushing the diameter of PTFE rods. The range is 4-9 mm, the diameter of the extruded PTFE rod is 10-50 mm, and the diameter of the molded PTFE rod is 55-300 mm. Therefore, according to this, you should choose the right type of PTFE rod for different situations.


2. Can the PTFE rod be used as an electrically insulating part?

A PTFE rod that can be used as an electrically insulating part and has a good effect. In addition to this specific use, PTFE rods can also be used mechanically and have many applications, such as self-lubricating bearings and piston rings. Moreover, the self-lubricating properties of the PTFE rod can greatly reduce the wear and heat of the machine parts and reduce the power consumption.


3. "Teflon" non-stick coating, is it the same as the PTFE rod on the raw material?

"Teflon" non-stick coating, which is obtained by processing with PTFE resin, and the raw material of PTFE rod, which can also be polytetrafluoroethylene resin, so these two products are on the raw material. Alternatively, it can be processed by using a polytetrafluoroethylene resin, thereby obtaining both products. In addition, this non-stick coating is mainly used on non-stick coatings, such as non-stick coating film and polymerization reactor liner.


4. The correct distinction between PTFE rods and nylon rods

The PTFE rod is made of polytetrafluoroethylene, which is a special plastic, commonly known as plastic king, and the nylon used in nylon rods, which is an engineering plastic, the professional name is polyamide. In terms of materials, Teflon performs better than nylon and is more expensive than nylon. In addition, the two bars have different appearance colors, the PTFE bar is milky white, and the nylon bar is slightly
