Custom PTFE shaped components are used in many medical applications. Typical areas include diagnostic instrument pumps and valves, oxygen concentrators and fluid transfer applications.
About PTFE Custom Shapes
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions develops PTFE compounds, modifying its basic properties with a variety of additives. The material is compressed and sintered at about +371 °C / +700 °F. Once the PTFE is sintered, it can be processed into a variety of custom shapes such as bellows or diaphragms, thermoformed or machined into any shape. Trelleborg Sealing Solutions can also over-mold to PTFE to create custom shapes for applications requiring both chemical resistance and a sealing function.
