Algoflon® PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) is a family of fully-fluorinated polymers that provide:

  • Chemical inertness
  • Outstanding temperature resistance
  • Extremely low coefficient of friction
  • Exceptional release and water repellent properties
  • Outstanding heat resistance

Algoflon® DF PTFE fine coagulated powders are agglomerates of fine particles with a high surface area. They can be processed by paste extrusion into tubing as well as electrical and mechanical tapes. They can also be expanded into porous products used as filtration membranes and high-performance textiles and fibers.

Algoflon® PTFE granular powders are non-friable particles with a low surface area. They can be compression molded into tubes, profiles and final parts. Stock shapes can be machined into parts and skived tapes.

Algoflon® D PTFE aqueous dispersions are ideally suited for coatings and films. They can be processed by impregnation on fibers and fabrics to impart non-stick behavior and improve the substrate’s chemical resistance. They can be cast onto metal substrates to create a protective barrier with low surface energy and high chemical resistance. Plus, they can be used as a processing aid for plastics compounding.

Algoflon® L PTFE micronized powders are low molecular weight powders that are easily dispersed in dry and liquid media. They are used as additives primarily in lubricants, greases and elastomers.
