Advantages of PTFE strip

PTFE strips supplied by RH Nuttall are a high end product designed for specific requirements. PTFE has excellent non-stick properties giving it a low co efficient of friction.

This makes our range of PTFE strips particularly useful in applications within bearings where moving or rubbing parts are apparent, nullifying any damage or chaffing, but improving free flow simultaneously. PTFE strips are supplied in a white colour. Carbon filled PTFE strip (black) is also available, but please ask a member of our sales team for more information.

Virgin PTFE strips are a flexible type of product compared to other more rigid plastics such as nylon, acetal or ABS.

This attribute of PTFE makes is a more malleable material, suitable for more pliable applications. Furthermore, PTFE strips have a high resistance to most acids, are FDA approved and are rated as a zero water absorption product, meaning that we supply a vast amount to our pharmaceutical industry customers.

Furthermore, the temperature range of our PTFE strips is astounding. PTFE strips can be classed as zero halogen and smoke free up to 260 degrees centigrade. Our PTFE strips have a continuous operating temperature range of -60 degrees centigrade to +260 degrees centigrade.

Small and large scale runs of PTFE strips

At RH Nuttall Limited we offer PTFE strip from small one off batches to multi thousand metre runs. State of the art slitting and guillotine machinery allows for widths of PTFE strips to start from 10mm wide, and we are capable of producing sections up to and including 1200mm wide.

Our cut PTFE strip is then coiled into suitable lengths, and can even be supplied in cut pieces or pads if desired. PTFE strips or PTFE pads cut to any desired rectangular or square section are readily available.

Grades of PTFE strip

Different grades of PTFE strip can be supplied for individual needs. RH Nuttall Limited currently offer two grades of PTFE strip for immediate dispatch.

Our virgin PTFE grade is free of inclusions and holds full FDA approval. This is a more expensive grade where certain parameters must be adhered to. We also offer a mechanical grade of PTFE strip which is made from a reconstituted grade of PTFE. This grade of PTFE strip offers a more cost effective solution on products such as wear strips.

PTFE strip samples

Samples of our PTFE strips can be made and sent off to you free of charge to test on your application prior to committing to a bulk order.

Standard PTFE strips
