About PTFE Custom Shapes

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions develops PTFE compounds, modifying its basic properties with a variety of additives. The material is compressed and sintered at about +371 °C / +700 °F. Once the PTFE is sintered, it can be processed into a variety of custom shapes such as bellows or diaphragms, thermoformed or machined into any shape. Trelleborg Sealing Solutions can also over-mold to PTFE to create custom shapes for applications requiring both chemical resistance and a sealing function.
