Fibracon® PTFE – Tubes, blocks, rods and machined parts
PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) Properties and Applications
We process the high-performance plastic PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) under the brand name Fibracon® as semi-finished products in the form of billets (tubes and rods), and sheets (plate and blocks), as well as machined components.
PTFE is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene that offers a number of unique properties, from low coefficient of friction, to unmatched chemical resistance, and a wide operating temperature range.

Having complete control of the manufacturing process, from PTFE powder to finished, machined part, helps to ensure the highest level of material consistency and quality.
Fibracon® PTFE - Application examples
Whether you require a PTFE seal profile or complex 5-axis CNC bespoke components, we have the capability to manufacture PTFE parts and components to your requirements. Our highly trained workforce, combined with investment in the latest CNC machining technologies, helps ensure consistent high quality.
Machined PTFE parts to your specification -we manufacture over 6000 different designs each year, from O-ring to piston ring, from seal to bearing, from bush to back-up ring and thousands of complex, bespoke components required by our customers. We also offer help with design optimisation for manufacture. Sometimes the smallest changes to wall thickness or radii can reduce machining time dramatically.
