What is PTFE

Polytetrafluoroethylene or PTFE, with its carbon chains completely fluorinated is inert to an exhaustive range of industrial chemicals.

Its non-stick characteristic, which resists the build-up of deposits, reduces clogging problems and is better for handling sticky resins and foodstuffs. Generally, limitation for use is molten alkali metals (such as metallic sodium), fluorine and the strong fluorinating agents.
