One of the most well-known uses of polytetrafluoroethylene, otherwise known as PTFE, is as a non-stick coating used on pans and other types of cookware. Its non-corrosive and non-reactive properties, due partly to the strength of carbon-fluoride bonds, makes it highly desirable in pipework and containers that store corrosive, reactive chemicals. PTFE is used as an effective lubricant, reducing energy consumption, friction, and wear of machinery. It's also used as grafting material for surgeries.
Our sheets of PTFE, manufactured by packaging and material handling experts JORESTECH®, are available at different thicknesses at an affordable price. Use them in any packaging applications that involve the storage or shipment of chemicals, and when you want superior insulation.
PTFE is used in many industries. It's used in chemical processing, due to its corrosion resistance and its ability to be unaffected by caustic substances at very high temperatures. For electrical applications, PTFE is an outstanding insulator, so it's often used to wrap wires and cables. It's used in semi-conductor applications, since the material is inert and it maintains its properties through a wide temperature range. PTFE is approved by the FDA for use in food, beverage, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. It provides a non-toxic, inert, sliding surface that inhibits bacterial growth. It can withstand the high temperatures from ovens and other heating equipment during manufacturing.
In addition to these PTFE sheet, we offer a wide selection of consumables for the packaging industry. You'll find shrink packaging film, vacuum packaging pouches, induction liners, hot ink rolls and hot stamp foil, packaging tape, industrial thread, box staples, hot melt glue sticks, bag closer tapes and more. Technopack Corporation is a leader in affordably priced material handling and packaging equipment, coding and printing machines and industrial safety gear.
