PTFE Fiber

Unique PTFE Fiber solutions for unique applications
Our customers bring us a wide variety of fiber design challenges. Thanks to our extensive experience in ePTFE processing, we can produce a PTFE based fiber solution of exceptional consistency by every measure. With our proprietary compounding technology, we can produce expanded fibers with highly specific and tightly controlled properties — including exceptional tenacity and high retained strength after exposure to UV radiation.

Coupled with the hydrophobic nature and near total chemical inertness of PTFE, qualities like these can yield important performance benefits — whether the application is industrial, commercial, or outdoor.

No compromises.
Plastomer Technologies is commited to following lean manufacturing methodologies in order to make ourselves an integral, reliable, and cost-effective part of your supply chain. You can count on getting the thread and fiber you need, exactly when and where you need it.

How do you want it?
To accommodate your needs and speed your production, we can supply expanded PTFE fiber in a variety of custom deniers and packages. We can also provide a variety of formats: flat and twisted.

Our PTFE products offer superior quality, innovation, and enhanced characteristics.
