PTFE Plastic Sheet
Plastic sheets are available in numerous grades, colours and thicknesses, many of which are supplied by ASG, sourced from a network of plastic material manufacturers and suppliers. One of the hundreds of plastics sheets include PTFE plastics or ‘Polytetrafluoroethylene’, sometimes also referred to as Teflon.
PTFE is a very versatile material that is manufactured in sheets of between 0.25 and 100mm thick, in sheet sizes of up to 1500mm x 1500mm (depending on thickness). Using one of our many on-site saws, presses or oscillating knife, we are able to convert PTFE plastic sheets into bespoke components such as pads, washers, strips and gaskets, all of which can be supplied plain or coated in a choice of self-adhesives or foils.

What are PTFE plastic sheets?
Plastic sheets can be made using PTFE or Polytetrafluoroethylene, which is a fluorocarbon material - consisting of only carbon and fluorine, natural coloured as standard, however other colours can be made to order. PTFE fluorocarbons are solid at room temperature, hydrophobic and non-stick. PTFE sheets in ‘Virgin grade’ in comparison to other plastics have a low mechanical strength, however this can be improved or reinforced with the inclusion of additives such as glass fibre or carbon during the manufacturing process. PTFE plastic sheets are large pieces of material, which can be used to convert into smaller components, or used in full for large surface coverings.
Why use PTFE plastic sheets?
PTFE plastic sheets are manufactured using a formulation that offers many excellent properties and unique characteristics, which include high thermal stability, chemical resistance and an extremely wide operating temperature range of -240 to +260°C. PTFE plastic sheets offer chemical inertness (with the exception of elemental alkali metals, chlorine trifluoride and elemental fluorine at high temperatures and pressures), ozone, flame resistance and an extremely low coefficient of friction meaning few materials stick to it without sufficient preparation. PTFE plastic is soft and formable, with good bearing and wear properties, and high dielectric strength.
Advantages of using PTFE plastic sheet
PTFE or Polytetrafluoroethylene sheets offer users a number of advantages meaning it is suited for use in many applications and industries. These sheets offers low friction, meaning moving parts will easily slide, causing less heat and wear, this slippy non-stick material is also easy to keep clean and dirt and dust will not stick to its surface. PTFE plastic sheets are non-flammable, this is due not only to its very low friction, but also its ability to withstand very high heat and its extremely high melting point.
PTFE offers great chemical resistance, and is extremely durable when exposed to weathering, combined with the great electrical properties it is ideal for use in most industries. PTFE plastic sheets are manufactured in a range of standard thicknesses which can be converted into a range of finished components and found utilised in a number of industries and applications including seals and fittings in chemical plants, food and pharmaceuticals. Due to being non-corrosive, this material can also be used to make containers ands, useful in laboratories where highly corrosive chemicals are handled, and also for cutting into gaskets, and circuit board components due to it’s electrical insulation and heat resistance properties.
