Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE / Teflon)

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE / Teflon)

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) shows a remarkable chemical resistance and it is insoluble in all known solvents. It is attacked only by molten alkali metals and by fluorine at high temperatures. PTFE is incombustible and may be used up to 260°C (300°C for short periods). PTFE’s coefficient of friction is extremely low and it shows the effect of self lubrication with constant mechanical properties which makes it particularly suitable for bearings, joints, O-rings, stirring bars, hazardous materials bottle pouers, syringes, crucubles, evaporating dishes etc. PTFE may be shaped by compression and sintering into bottles and beakers where its chemical stability and non-wettability make it suitable for use in extreme circumstances.

ABS Resistance :

  • Excellent resistance (no attack) to :-
    Dilute and Concentrated Acids, Alcohols, Aldehydes, Bases, Esters, Aliphatic, Aromatic and Halogenated, Hydrocarbons, Ketones, Mineral Oils, Vegetable Oils, Oxidizing Agents.

Member Testimonials

ONGC – Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited

"ONGC - Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited" - Our complex drilling application where Shaft was eccentric and application was robust & muddy. Replacement was never easy. Mech Spares designed Oil seals resolved difficulty. This gave a complete joy to my maintenance team.

Kuwait National Petroleum Company

"Mr Mohammed Al Duaigy" of (Kuwait National Petroleum Company) : We tried several diaphragms from renown worldwide Rubber manufacturing companies. We found Mech Spares technical know how and product to be of great durability and lasted 3 times more then anticipated. They have accurate understanding of there products.

McCafferty BM Design Ltd, KENT United Kingdom

"McCafferty BM Design Ltd, KENT United Kingdom" - Most of the O rings manufacturing company suggested to use larger diameter and expensive elastomers. We learnt with Mech Spares that elastomer being weaker compare to metal and alloys and needs appropriate back up for high pressure or high vacuum applications. Further not necessary the most expensive elastomer is the best for all applications. We trust Mr Nilesh chodhari completely for all our O rings designing applications.

Bhabha Atomic Research Centre ( BARC )

"Dr. A. Singh" of BARC: The electric Insulation mat manufactured by MECH SPARES as per IS 15624 tested at ERTL and found to withstand 40 Kv and still didn't tear. We have been using since 5 years and still didn't generate any fatigue. They arranged bulk delivery in short period.

Tata Steel

"Tata Steel" - One of our old machines started making loud noise and disturbed the entire village. We were compelled to stop the machines which lead to huge production loss. With the help of Mech Spares designed bellows in two part we could retain the lubrication and eliminate the noise.
