PTFE Bottle Caps
is a recognized leader in the design, development
and production of fluorocarbon plastic screw
caps. Available in both standard and custom
versions, we offer a complete line
of chemically-resistant fluorocarbon plastic
screw caps that combine effective, economical
sealing with easy opening and closing. Used
in applications that require positive sealing
of alkalies, inorganic acids, oxidizing
agents and most organic solvents.
Texolon® fluorocarbon plastic
screw caps also completely eliminate the
need for conventional gas closures and the
difficulty in sealing and opening bottles
(which formerly required unwieldy plaster-of-paris
Advantages of our
fluorocarbon plastic screw caps include excellent
abrasion and impact resistance, as well as being
impervious to many chemicals. Since fluorocarbon
plastic screw caps are resistant to the majority
of chemicals, screw caps can be easily cleaned
or sterilized for re-use, resulting in a long
service life. Typical applications include laboratories,
along with the pharmaceutical, chemical and semiconductor
industries, to name a few. Please see the chemical resistance guide for specific chemical
fluorocarbon plastic screw caps.
Our standard plastic screw caps feature a line comprised of a
thin film of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and a substrate that compresses suitably to ensure
a positive seal. The standard fluorocarbon plastic screw caps conform to the established
requirements of the Glass Packaging Institute (GPI, formerly known as the Glass Container
Manufacturers Institute, or GCMI), Standard 430 for 24, 28 and 38 millimeter (mm) sizes.
Standard plastic screw caps are only available in gray.
Custom plastic screw caps can be produced in standard sizes in
other colors, and can also be manufactured in custom sizes per special request. As part of a
custom plastic screw cap quote, please provide the Plastomer Technologies' Texolon group a
drawing of the cap needed, and the material preferred for the cap and liner. Please feel
free to call or email the Plastomer Technologies' Texolon group with all your plastic screw
