PTFE Fiber
Oral Care Applications

Plastomer manufactures high quality ePTFE monofilament fiber. Clinical studies have proven PTFE-based oral care products do not fray during use and reduce inter-proximal bleeding at a faster rate than use of other synthetic fiber materials.

Plastomer PTFE fiber is ideal for oral care applications including oral surgery since it has the same characteristics on each surface and a superior comfort texture. We welcome the opportunity to custom-engineer our fiber characteristics to meet your manufacturing and performance needs.
