What is PTFE fabric?

PTFE, or polytetrafluoroethylene, is a Teflon®-coated woven fiberglass membrane that is extremely durable and weather resistant. This unique combination of inertness, thermal stability and surface properties make Birdair's PTFE-coated fabric membrane ideal for projects requiring superior weather and fire resistance.
A.

What is PTFE coating?

PTFE coatings, or Polytetrafluoroethylene are non-stick fluoropolymer coatings that use a two-coat (primer/topcoat) system. This coating is normally used where a dry lubricant or low friction, or corrosion resistant coating is necessary.

  • Is PTFE is a plastic?

    PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) PTFE is a very useful material because it has a unique combination of properties. PTFE is chemically inert, weatherable, excellent electrical insulation, high temperature resistance, a low coefficient of friction and non-adhesive properties.
  • Is PTFE a silicone?

    PTFE is short for polytetrafluoroethylene, but it's best known by DuPont's trade name Teflon. Made famous as a cookware coating, PTFE has a variety of uses, such as lubricating chains and cables. Even though it's chemically different, PTFE has lubricative characteristics similar to silicone.
B.

What is polytetrafluoroethylene made of?

PTFE is a vinyl polymer, and its structure, if not its behavior, is similar to polyethylene. Polytetrafluoroethylene is made from the monomer tetrafluoroethylene by free radical vinyl polymerization.

  • What is made of Teflon?

    PolyTetraFluoroEthylene is a fluorocarbon-based polymer and is commonly abbreviated PTFE. The Teflon® brand of PTFE is manufactured only by DuPont. Several other manufacturers make their own brands of PTFE which can often be used as substitute materials.
  • Is it safe to use Teflon?

    The nonstick coating is made from a chemical called PTFE, also known as Teflon, which makes cooking and washing up fast and easy. However, Teflon has been PFOA-free since 2013. Today's nonstick and Teflon cookware is completely safe for normal home cooking, as long as temperatures do not exceed 570°F (300°C).
