Teflon PTFE Washers

Teflon™ PTFE products are commonly found in a number of different applications and are particularly popular because of their unique set of properties, which includes resistance to both water and oil, and an extremely low coefficient of friction. Moreover, the material’s heat and chemical resistance coupled with its fairly high strength makes it both durable and dependable.

Resilience

browse-our-catalogTeflon™ is an outstanding thermal insulator and the most chemically resistant plastic available today. In fact, it is one of the only known materials that is completely impervious to damage from almost all corrosive fluids.

Furthermore, it can handle up to 500 volts per mil and temperatures up to 600 degrees F while maintaining dimensional stability, resistance against creep, and the anti-frictional properties for which the product is so well known. This means that with these products, one can expect consistent, long lasting performance.

Compared to other nonmetallic materials, it is relatively expensive — this is partly because it has some of the most beneficial properties of any nonmetallic material and is as such in high demand.

It also has the lowest coefficient of friction of any solid material, even at high speeds, which means that it often does not require lubrication. In cases where higher levels of lubrication are desired, you only need to lubricate Teflon™ PTFE products once — products made from the material are virtually maintenance-free.

Applications

Teflon™ PTFE washers and other products are found in various different industry applications, including appliances (A/C units, dish washers, washers and dryers), outdoor furniture, outdoor power equipment, hose and sprinkler systems, power tools, and plumbing fixtures (in fact, plumber’s tape is actually made from Teflon™ PTFE). The material is without a doubt one of the most commonly used metal alternatives in the plumbing industry.

Anywhere you need consistent performance — including resistance to high temperatures, chemicals, oil, and water, as well as superior anti-friction qualities — these products are a fantastic option.
