What is Teflon?

Teflon, a brand name for PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), revolutionized material science with its discovery in 1938. This fluoropolymer is celebrated for its remarkable properties, including resistance to high temperatures and chemicals, making it indispensable across various industries.

Teflon’s low-friction surface is not just a staple in cookware but extends its utility to electrical insulation, chemical tank liners, and more. Its ability to perform under extreme conditions — from -240°C to 260°C — ensures reliability in even the most demanding applications.

Axim Mica’s line of Teflon products harnesses these exceptional qualities to offer solutions that meet the highest standards of performance and safety.

Properties of Teflon

Comprised primarily of carbon and fluorine atoms, Teflon (PTFE) boasts an array of properties due to its unique molecular structure, making it indispensable in various applications:

  • Chemical Inertia: Teflon remains stable and unreactive with virtually all chemicals, making it ideal for use in harsh environments.

  • Electrical Insulation: With high dielectric strength, Teflon is an excellent insulator, protecting electrical circuits even under extreme conditions.

  • Wide Thermal Range: Capable of continuous service from -240°C to 260°C, Teflon handles drastic temperature changes without losing its integrity.

  • Mechanical Durability: Its low frictional properties and resistance to stress-cracks contribute to Teflon’s longevity in mechanical applications.

  • Flame Resistance: Teflon does not easily ignite, adding an essential layer of safety in applications prone to high temperatures.

How Teflon Is Made

Producing teflon is a high-precision process that transforms basic chemical elements into the versatile material recognized for its exceptional properties:


The process begins with the polymerization of tetrafluoroethylene (TFE) gas, under controlled conditions, producing a fine, white powder - the base PTFE resin.


This resin is then mixed with a lubricant to facilitate molding; the mixture's ratio is crucial for maintaining Teflon's unique properties.


The mixture undergoes pre-forming under pressure to shape it into a moldable form without initiating the sintering process.


The pre-formed material is heated to high temperatures, causing the PTFE particles to fuse in a controlled sintering process, solidifying the material and enhancing its properties.

Cooling and Finishing

Finally, the sintered Teflon is slowly cooled and then undergoes finishing processes, including cutting and shaping into the final product, ready for a wide range of applications.

Types of Teflon Products by Axim Mica

At Axim Mica, our Teflon lineup is designed to meet a spectrum of industrial needs, highlighting two key variations that exemplify the versatility and performance of our offerings:

Teflon PFA (Perfluoroalkoxy alkanes)

Known for its superior ability to withstand continuous high temperatures and aggressive chemical environments, Teflon PFA is the material of choice for applications requiring utmost reliability and cleanliness. Its exceptional clarity and flexibility make it ideal for use in semiconductor, pharmaceutical, and laboratory settings.

Teflon PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene)

This is the original Teflon material that boasts remarkable chemical inertness, virtually universal resistance to chemicals, and a wide temperature service range. Teflon PTFE’s unparalleled low friction coefficient and non-stick properties are exploited in everything from cookware coatings to aerospace components.
