PTFE is a high tech flourplast type that is chemical and heat stable.

PTFE is probably best known for its very low friction, known as Teflon ®.

PTFE can be supplied with food approved in conjunction with food contact, upon request.

Trade names of raw materials and semi-finished products:

  • Teflon®
  • Hostaflon®
  • Fluon
  • Maflon®

Linatex supplies both semi-finished and finished products, as required. Documentation for quality and short delivery times makes Linatex a good partner.

What is PTFE used for

  • Lowest friction of all types of plastic
  • UV-resistant
  • Good electrical and dielectric properties
  • Not attacked by microorganisms
  • Very low water absorption
  • Supplied with different fillers


Hard to work.

Call dimensional stability.

Call abrasion resistance.

High density compared to other plastic types.

Attacked by liquid alkali metals, such as fluorine gas.

Limited cargo capacity (cold floats).

Very difficult to paste (must be pre-treated).


Electrical insulating applications, chemical industry, self-lubricating bearings, gaskets, seals, filters, etc.
