PTFE - Machined Components
PTFE Machined Components
Because of its unique molecular structure, PTFE in its raw granular form does not melt. It cannot be moulded into complex forms like other plastics & polymers. However, it is easily machinable on all standard equipment, including the most advanced CNC / VMC machines.
PTFE can be cut, bored, milled and turned using standard tooling. Typically PTFE is machined to tolerances of about plus or minus 50 Microns.
PTFE is very resilient which allows machined parts to conform to most working dimensions.
Hi-Tech has a complete machine shop to turn out finished parts; from prototypes up to mass production. We have been producing and machining PTFE for over 30 years.
Some of the industrial parts typically machined with PTFE are:-
- Valve components
- Bearings and bushings
- O-rings, seals, and gaskets
- Semi-conductor Components
- Chemical Lab ware, Chemical components
- PTFE Balls
- Components for the steam industry
