Fluon® PTFE Resins and Micropowders

Cost-effective fluoropolymer resins and micropowders that are widely used in many areas of modern life.

The Fluon® PTFE brand includes polytetrafluoroethylene resins and micropowders.

Highly cost-effective materials, Fluon® PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) resins are the most widely used fluoropolymers found in many areas of modern life. Resin properties keep insulation thickness to a minimum while tolerating a wider range of temperatures (-180 °C to 260 °C) than other insulators.

Inert to almost all chemicals, PTFE resins also offer good resistance to most solvents. They are suitable for outdoor use with no detriment to properties from extended exposure to the elements. Kindly note that not all items may be commercially available so please contact us for specific grade information or to discuss your application for a recommendation.

Fluon® PTFE Resin Grades

To accommodate an ever-growing range of end-use products, PTFE resins are available in different grades

  • Coagulated dispersions (CD): White, free-flowing powders made by coagulating dispersions of PTFE. Developed for paste extrusion into tapes, tubes, pipe liners and coated wires.
  • Granular powders: Fine powders that are molded by first pressing and heating, then shaped by being cut or whittled into sheets, rods or billets. Available in a range of particle sizes and properties. Used for applications requiring superior mechanical or electrical properties.
  • They have been developed for paste extrusion into tapes, tubes, pipe liners, and coated wires

Fluon® Micropowders

Fluon® PTFE Micropowders and FEP Micropowders are lubricants milled to a very fine powder while retaining excellent lubricity properties. These powders can be compounded in rubber and plastics or dispersed in liquids to improve friction and wear properties of the base material. Many grades are used in non-stick surface applications such as extreme pressure additives in oil and grease, and in solvent applications. PTFE and FEP lubricant powders offer great advantages over conventional anti-scuff agents in printing inks, permitting quick solvent release, faster printing speeds, and excellent print gloss.

Fluon® PTFE Resin Grades

  • Coagulated dispersions: Suitable for extrusion of thin flexible sections, such as wire insulation, tubing and unsintered tape. They comply with the specifications of ASTM D4895 Type 1.
  • Granular powders: Suitable for compression molding of billets, isostatic molding of intricate shapes, automatic molding of stock shapes, compounding with fillers, and ram extrusion of rod and tubing.

Fluon® Micropowders

  • High thermal, chemical and weather resistance
  • Improved wear resistance, lubricity, non-stick and frictional characteristics of host media
  • Can be added to coatings that contact food and drink
  • Excellent dielectric properties
