RS Pro Solid Plastic PTFE Sheets
From RS Pro a range of high-quality PTFE solid plastic sheets available in a range of sizes and thicknesses.
What are Solid Plastic Sheets?
Solid plastic sheets are sheets of strong durable plastic or plastic like materials which are cut to size and sold in a wide range of sizes and thickness. Solid plastic sheets, once purchased, can then be cut or machined into components for the fabrication of products for use in a wide range of industries. Different plastics have different properties which lend them for use in specific applications
What is PTFE Plastic?
PTFE (Polytetrafluorethylene sometimes referred to as Teflon) is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic that has low strength and rigidity but a wealth of other unique properties that make it a high performance product. The main attributes of PTFE plastic are its high thermal stability, excellent chemical resistance and excellent sliding properties. Parts made of PTFE tend to generate lower friction and heat, which increases the life of the parts made from it and reduces maintenance costs. The very high sliding properties of PTFE mean that the surfaces can slide over each other with low friction resistance known as low coefficient of friction. This reduces wear and tear making this plastic ideal for use in component such as bearings
Features and Benefits
Extremely high chemical resistance
Hot water resistant
High temperature performance a high melting point of -200 to +260°C, short-term up to 300°C
Excellent sliding properties with low coefficient of friction
Non-stick surface, no materials will stick to it. PTFE is also difficult to bond or weld
High coefficient of thermal expansion (The ratio that a material expands in accordance with changes in temperature)
Relatively low strength and rigidity
Excellent UV and weather resistance
Good electrical insulation properties
Low dielectric constant
Flame retardent and self-extinguishing V-0
Gamma radiation sensitive
PTFE plastic sheet due to its excellent sliding properties, high thermal stability and chemical resistance is suitable for use in a wide range of industries including transport and conveying, pump and instrument construction, electrical engineering, food processing and medical, aircraft and aerospace, laser technology and many others. Due to its unique properties PTFE plastic can be used in the fabrication of components for sliding applications that are subject to a high level of chemical stress. Components that can be manufactured from this plastic include the following:
Slide bearings and runners
Pump housings and parts
High frequency insulation
Questions and Answers
What tools can be used to cut this plastic sheet?
The choice of tools used to cut this plastic depend on the thickness of the sheet being cut. Thin sheets of plastic can be cut using a sharp utility knife. Thicker sheets can be cut using a range of different types of saw such as a fine toothed hand saw or hacksaw or an electric table saw, band saw, circular saw or jig saw. The teeth on the saw blade should be well sharpened and evenly spaced out with a uniform height and shape to avoid cracking or chipping the plastic. The friction caused by sawing can cause the blade to heat which can melt the plastic therefore using a no-melt blade is recommended. If using a regular blade, it is an idea to pause between cuts to allow the blade to cool.
