PCTFE Rod has the best performance of gas barrier properties, especially for low permeation capability to moisture and steam atmosphere compared with other plastics. The heat resistance and chemical resistance capabilities are lesser than PFA and FEP, however, mechanical characteristics (especially hardness) are superior.
PCTFE sheet is inert to chemicals and functions over a -200 oC to +150 oC temperature range. PCTFE has excellent electrical properties and may be machined to precise dimensions. Compression, impact and tensile strength are high over a wide temperature range. It has excellent rigidity, low temperature resistance, cryogenic fluid resistance, and airflow resistance. It has special application in the high new technical areas.
