PTFE Rod is known as having the lowest co-efficient of friction of any solid material and is extremely effective operating at extremely high and low temperatures.

What is PTFE?

PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) fluorocarbon resins represent one of the most versatile products lines ever to emerge from Du Pont laboratories. From Exotic space-age applications to molded parts and wire and cable insulation to its consumer use as a coating for cookware, PTFE has fulfilled a wide variety of roles in its 40-year history.

  • What is PTFE


PFA Lined Ball Valves

PFA exhibits thermal characteristics like to PTFE, being able to withstand super low to high temperatures (260°C maximum temperature for continuous use). It is also transparent and mechanically strong under high temperature. PFA is used where purity is most important. PFA has better mechanical strength at high temperatures than FEP, and excellent moldability for easy processing.

Due to the high bonding strength of the carbon, fluorine and oxygen atoms, PFA demonstrates nearly the same outstanding capabilities as PTFE in temperatures ranging from -200°C to +260°C.

Ball Valves lined with PFA provide trouble free service in acid environments. PFA Lined Ball valves are commonly used in pulp and paper operations, Chlorine water, chlorine dioxide, sodium hypochlorite and sulphuric services.
