Quality and Aims

Expanded PTFE (ePTFE)

expanded PTFE (ePTFE) is a specially processed Polytetrafluoroethylene.

By orientating the PTFE molecules, ePTFE is beeing self-reinforced and offers much better tensile strength and lower creep than standard non-orientated PTFE.

Monodirectional ePTFE is beeing orientated in just one single direction.

Multidirectional ePTFE is beeing orientated in several directions and therefore offers high strength and creep resistance in longitudinal and transversal direction.

FluorTex GmbH is one of the leading manufacturers of e PTFE. Huge investment into R&D guarantees technological advantage in materials and production.


Sintered PTFE

sintered PTFE is the standard material in the fluoropolymer family.

sintered PTFE types:

        standard virgin


        or with filler
