PTFE Rod - Metal Detectable

PTFE Rod - Metal Detectable 

Metal Detectable PTFE rod contains very fine material additives that are identifiable to most metal detector equipment. It retains the key characteristics of standard PTFE grades and is mostly used in food, drink and pharmaceutical processing applications. It provides good thermal stability, has a very low coefficient of friction and has excellent resistance to corrosion and chemicals. Metal detectable PTFE rod also has good electrical properties, but is difficult to bond.


Rollers, scrolls, slide bearings, gaskets, seals and washers.
