PTFE Seals Manufacturer – Why Choose Reading Plastic

ptfe seals manufacturer
Seals are a key component of nearly every machine and vehicle in operation. They protect critical components – like bearings – from harsh environments and potentially damaging media. PTFE is the most common seal material because it offers self-lubrication and excellent chemical resistance, outperforming other seal materials. Because PTFE seals often require fillers and exact specifications, it is important to choose a PTFE seals manufacturer who has the knowledge and experience to help you choose the right PTFE blend and deliver high-quality parts that hold tight tolerances.

What are the Benefits of PTFE Seals?

While there are numerous benefits of PTFE, pure PTFE has very little elasticity and is prone to creep over time. There is a modified co-polymer of PTFE, PFA (perfluoroalkoxy), that is creep resistant and is still very chemically resistant, flexible and thermally stable. Fillers can also be added to PTFE to increase its strength and prevent it from deforming under load, but these fillers can decrease chemical resistance and may not be FDA approved.
