Dupont Teflon, a trademarked name, is also available in polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE).

This fluoropolymer, also manufactured by others, is one of the most widely recognized compounds used throughout the world. Its applications are near endless.

Dupont PTFE is a product formed by free radical vinyl polymerization of tetrafluoroethylene (TFE) and is known to have a continuous service temperature of 500 F. Much higher temperatures can be satisfactorily sustained for shorter exposures.

Mechanical properties include, but are not limited to, flexibility at low temperatures, stability at high temperatures, and low coefficient of friction. Understand, too, that the information below does not take into account wear factors, which can be dramatically improved upon by internal or external material reinforcements of PTFE dispersion.

There have been many practical non-lubricated mechanical systems developed with coefficient of friction as low as 0.05-0.08. Even at higher dynamic P-V (a pressure, rub-velocity combination of 8,000 to 10,000) a coefficient of friction around 0.10 is feasible.

These resins exhibit exceptionally low friction in non-lubricated environments, especially at low surface velocities and pressures higher than 5 pounds per square inch. The coefficient of friction actually increases with sliding speed up to 100 feet per minute, under all pressure conditions. It is this phenomenon that prevents
