DuPont™ Teflon® PTFE

Teflon® PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) fine powders provide a practical method for producing long lengths of product through non-melt-extrusion techniques.  DuPont™ Teflon® PTFE resins have become the preferred plastic for a host of applications and processing techniques.

DuPont™ Teflon® PTFE fluoroplastic resins offer:

  • Strong chemical resistance
  • Superior electrical properties
  • Resistance to High temperatures
  • Mechanical Toughness
  • Low Friction properties
  • Corrosion Resistance
  • Stress-Cracking Resistance

Available in white powder, often called "fine powder," Teflon® PTFE Fluoroplastic resins are uniquely capable of being sheared by lubricated paste extrusion into a coherent fibrous matrix with a resultant structural integrity.

The many uses of Teflon® PTFE fine powders include:

  • Coaxial cable
  • Control cable and Push/Pull cable liners
  • Convoluted, heat-shrinkable, unsupported, and spaghetti tubing
  • Industrial and Premium hose
  • Low reduction ratio wire and cable coating
  • Pigmented and thin grade electrical tape and sleeving
  • Pipe liners
  • Pump diaphragms
  • Stress-crack resistant wire coating
  • Unsintered tape

How DuPont™ Teflon® PTFE Products Fit Your Application Needs

DuPont™ offers a variety of Teflon® fluoroplastic resins to meet a wide range of performance demands in the wire and cable industry.  We have the experience and expertise to help you select the best resins for your specific application.

Family of DuPont™ Teflon® PTFE Resins
For Wire and Cable Applications

DuPont™ Teflon® PTFE 6C
DuPont™ Teflon® PTFE 6C is a general-purpose resin for products with small cross-sections, medium to high reduction ratios, and fast processing rates.  Teflon® PTFE 6C is used in the production of long lengths of tubing and wire insulation where melt-extrusion is impractical.  Teflon® PTFE 6C is an excellent choice for chemical linings, push/pull cable liners, electrical grade tape, and reinforced hose.
