Description

TETCO V is a chemically modified polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE) that fills the gap between conventional PTFE and melt-processable PFA. A number of properties of traditional PTFE have been improved by modifying the polymer chain. In comparison, Tetco V is distinguishable by:

  • Excellent weldability
  • Lower deformation under load
  • Low permeability

Previously called Tetron T

PTFE Plastics Applications:

  • Seals
  • Welded components
  • Gaskets
  • Encapsulated metal inserts
  • Bearing pads
