TECHNICAL KNOW-HOW - ePTFE

expanded PTFE / ePTFE as key competence

PTFE Eigenschaften

The technical know-how of KWO® Company results from a more than 25-year experience in the field of fluorinated polymers.

During this period KWO® Company has acquired great scientific understanding of fluorine-based materials, notably in the fabrication of ePTFE and its processing.

 

The expertise of KWO® Company concerns principally the process of PTFE expansion, during which the synthetic material is converted under certain conditions into a resistant plastic with a fine porosity, being suitable for an almost unrivalled wide range of applications.

 

PROPERTIES OF PTFE

  • high chemical resistance
  • high thermal resistance
  • flame retardant
  • hysiologically inert
  • solid white plastic
  • anti -adhesive
  • low coefficient of friction
  • creep tendency
  • antibacterial effect
  • biocompatibility

PERFORMANCE OF ePTFE

  • high tensile strength
  • high adaptability
  • breathable
  • filter characteristics
  • endless producable
  • density from 0.6 to 1.0 g/cm3
  • shapeable / compressable
  • easy to cut
  • high molecular weight
  • high creep resistance
  • no caking onto flange
