Using PTFE Micropowders to Manufacture Thermoplastic Parts that are as Non-stick as a Frying Pan

The very same chemicals that keep foods from sticking to frying pans can be used to enhance any thermoplastic part or component. Thermoplastic resins made with powerful polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) micropowders provide excellent non-stick properties.  The Power of PTFE PTFE micropowders are synthetic fluoropolymers that act as lubricants in thermoplastic base resins to improve their surface […]

5 Key Products That Are Enhanced With PTFE Micropowders

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) micropowders are used as additives in thousands of products. They can add lubricity or improve friction and wear characteristics of base materials. Because PTFE micropowders are milled very fine, they can be compounded in rubber, plastics, or dispersed in liquids. Here are 5 ideal applications: Printing Inks PTFE lubricant powders are superior to […]

Vehicle Makers Turn to Fluoropolymers to Protect Auto Parts from Harsh Fuels

Using ethanol, biodiesel and other biofuels are becoming commonplace as we seek alternatives to nonrenewable oil resources and try to reduce harmful emissions. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, roughly 97% of gasoline in the U.S. contains some ethanol. The problem is that these biofuels and additives are extremely harsh on vehicle fuel systems […]

Tips for Selecting Lubricant PTFE Powders

If you’ve been working with or purchasing PTFE powders for a while now, then you already know that these fine resins produce products that are resistant to water, heat, friction and abrasion. In fact, you can compound PTFE powders with rubbers and plastics to add lubrication properties. Compounders can can also disperse them into liquids for fortification […]
