Product Information

PTFE rods (polytetrafluoroethylene) are capable of operating at high and low temperatures. It is also also chemical resistant and FDA compliant.

The high temperature range from -200°C to + 260°C, as well as the very good sliding properties, offers hardly any other plastic to this extent, which is why polytetrafluoroethylene is rightly counted among the high-performance plastics. PTFE is inherently UV-resistant and can be used outdoors in adverse weather conditions. In addition, PTFE complies with the very stringent fire protection class UL94 V0 and is therefore considered non-flammable. Another key factor, especially for the chemical industry, is its outstanding resistance to chemicals, so PTFE also defies concentrated acids, alkalis, alcohols, oils or strong solvents.

VR Trade has an extensive stock of PTFE rods in diameter 4 up to 100mm. In the production department the rods can also be processed into a ready to use product, for example, slide bearings insulators or rollers with a very short delivery time.
