Among the plastics, fluororesin has excellent properties like heat resistance, low temperature resistance and electrical insulation. Because of these properties, PTFE hose is not suitable for chemical industry, electric and electronic industry, but also suitable for aerospace use.
In these fluororesins, PTFE is the typical product of hydrocarbon polymer. It also has the reputation “King of plastics”. The fluorine atom in hydrocarbon polymer has strong chemical adhesion, so PTFE hose has excellent chemical resistance compared with other plastics. The more the fluorine atom there is, the better the property will be. Thus we can see that PTFE is the best products among the hydrocarbon polymers. Then what’s the advantages of PTFE? Let’s see.
PTFE hose can constantly work in 260℃ for long term and even 300℃ shortly. Besides, it has excellent low temperature resistance. Thus PTFE is widely used to produce electric appliance, components and insulated wires.
PTFE hose has excellent resistance to general chemicals. It resists acid or alkali oxidant agent even at high temperature condition. So PTFE hose, PTFE lining, PTFE sealing and PTFE sleeve is quite suitable for chemical industry.
The molecular structure PTFE is nonpolar, so it’s suitable for high frequency insulation material. The permittivity and dielectric loss is low and stable in wide frequency range. Besides, it is immune to sunlight and humidity. Thus, it’s very suitable for wires and insulation sleeve.
In normal conditions, PTFE hose has extremely low solid friction coefficient and it will not peristalsis. Besides, it almost not bond with other materials, so it can transfer viscous liquid in automobile manufacture and mechanical industry.
From the above content we can see PTFE has excellent properties and various applications. Besides the applications mentioned above, it can also be sued in airplane, rocket and missile.
