PTFE & Teflon Molded Rod
Fluoro-Plastics compression molds rods and cylinders for machining in a wide range of sizes. The most common sizes are listed in the table below, but many other combinations of OD and ID are available. Molded rods are preferred for machining because compression molding yields greater material homogeneity for the finished part.
Most rods are molded to 12 inches in length, although other lengths are available.
All rods can be etched for bonding, and can be mounted on a plywood disk for less waste in machining.
All rods can be made with filled (reinforced) PTFE to enhance the performance parameters of PTFE. Materials available for reinforcement are Glass Fiber, Carbon, Graphite, Bronze, Molybdenum Disulfide, and Stainless Steel.
