PTFE CNC Machining

PTFE, or Teflon, offers excellent chemical resistance and unmatched coefficient of friction


PTFE is a crystalline polymer with chemical resistance and a coefficient of friction lower than nearly any other materials. The dialectric constant (2.1) of PTFE and its loss factor are low and stable across a wide temperature and frequency range.

Uses for CNC Machining PTFE

PTFE parts exhibit low coefficient of friction and chemical resistance. It's often used for industrial and electrical applications.

  • Bearings and bushings
  • Electrical housings
  • Hinges
  • Food processing equipment
  • Lab instrumentation
