Polytetrafluoroethylene has the characteristics of resistance to acid, alkali, and various organic solvents, and it is almost insoluble in all solvents. At the same time, PTFE has the characteristics of high-temperature resistance, and its friction coefficient is very low, so it can be used for lubrication and become an ideal coating for easy cleaning of the inner layer of water pipes. So. Do you know how to clean PTFE?
PTFE can be made into PTFE tubes, rods, belts, plates, films, etc. Pure PTFE is particularly suitable for use in the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries. Compared with filled PTFE, it is almost suitable for all working conditions and generally use elastic parts to cooperate with it. It is widely used in various industries such as hydraulics, compressors, and chemical industries.
The polytetrafluoroethylene pipe is made of suspension polymerized polytetrafluoroethylene resin through plunger extrusion processing. Among the known plastics, PTFE has the best chemical resistance and dielectric properties. Polytetrafluoroethylene braided packing is a good dynamic sealing material. It is woven from expanded polytetrachloroethylene tape. It has a low friction coefficient, wear resistance, chemical corrosion resistance, good sealing, no hydrolysis, no Excellent performance such as hardening.
How to clean:
1. If there is dust on the PTFE gasket, wipe it with a cloth.
2. If it is oily stains, use organic solvents to clean them, because oily stains are insoluble in water and easily soluble in organic solvents (such as alcohol, acetone, etc.). There is no need to worry about PTFE gaskets being corroded by organic solvents. Because the gasket has excellent resistance to corrosion and organic solvents.
3. When cleaning the PTFE gasket with organic solvents, just scrub it with a toothbrush and dry it.
