Aerospace Applications

eptfe aerospace application engine turbineThe emphasis on cost, reliability and durability in the aerospace and aircraft industry has resulted in an increased demand for porous PTFE products.

PTFE offers a unique combination of desirable properties:

  • Temperature resistance -200°C to +260°C
  • Smooth non-stick low friction surface
  • Chemical resistance
  • Mechanical strength
  • Durability
  • Controlled microwave DK
  • Low electrical dissipation

PTFE is a material of choice for aerospace specifiers for very demanding applications in aggressive chemical and high heat environments. PTFE products are resistant to attack by nearly all chemical reagents, including organic and inorganic acids, alkalines, ketones, esters, alcohols, fuels and hot water. The primary uses for these high performance materials include seals, valves, gaskets, spacers, insulation, diaphragms, cable guides, and other parts used in the aerospace industry.

Outstanding chemical inertness in aggressive environments, excellent thermal resistance, and non-stick properties throughout a wide range of temperatures makes PTFE the ideal material for many critical applications.
