Skived PTFE film is "skived" or cut from a cylinder using a lathe in USA Germany or China. It is produced in very clean areas with a major focus on contamination control. State-of-the-art skiving lathes make it possible to control to the tightest tolerances in the world. Paste extruded PTFE is produced by pressing the film through an extrusion die. Paste extruded film is unsintered. Read more...More Product Announcements from Saint-Gobain Plastic Films and Tapes
A new manufacturing facility for high performance thermoplastic films was officially opened last week by UK Chancellor George Osborne. Victrex, a world leader in high performance polymer solutions has invested $25 million (£16 million) to increase its capacity to supply APTIV® film, a success story for the company, with good growth in recent years.

DeWAL DW 203 Unsintered PTFE is designed for use in wire and cable as electrical insulation. The material is particularly well suited for cable insulation, harness wrap and as the dielectric medium in coaxial lines. It provides many of the features inherent in ordinary sintered PTFE with the addition of markedly enhanced drape-conforming characteristics and improved sealing properties.

DeWAL UHMW-PE thin film products provide excellent protection from wear and abrasion in automotive rubber profiles. The low friction and resistance to stick-slip of UHMW-PE are particularly important when considering high-wear surface areas in glass-run channels. Compared to conventional flock-coated products, these thin film surfaces exhibit major performance advantages. Read more...More Product Announcements from DeWAL Industries, Inc.
DeWAL Industries produces a full line of PTFE and UHMW-PE films. These films are particularly adaptable in many hose applications. Since DeWAL films are resistant to a wide range of chemicals, they are an excellent choice for hose linings. The abrasion resistance and low friction features of DeWAL films promote extremely low wear and extended hose life. Read more...More Product Announcements from DeWAL Industries, Inc.
Black copolymer polypropylene is a lightweight thermoplastic with a layer of high-density polyethylene in its base resin that increases flexibility and impact strength. Copolymer polypropylene has moderate rigidity, excellent formability and good stress and crack resistance. Read more...More Product Announcements from Interstate Plastics, Inc.
Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a machinable fluoropolymer known for having a low coefficient of friction and high resistance to heat, chemicals and moisture. PTFE, a very slippery material, is used as coating on cookware, gaskets, seals and hoses. Read more...More Product Announcements from Interstate Plastics, Inc.
