The PTFE Market is expected to display rapid growth in forthcoming years. PTFE stands for Polytetrafluoroethylene and its best brand product is Teflon an original Chemours discovery. PTFE is a fluorescent solid and its main constituents include Carbon and fluorine. PTFE is hydrophobic with a lowest coefficient of friction among all solids. PTFE is used in diverse applications from all walks of life and its range commences from kitchen cookware where it helps in non-stick coating for pans and PTFE benefits roll into other applications as well such as containers and pipes helped along by anti-corrosive properties when used with corrosive chemicals. PTFE is also used in medical equipment in hospitals and as a graft material in interventional surgeries.
Another property of added valued with PTFE is PTFE has powerful dielectric properties and hence finds itself to be of very vital use in aerospace and computers specifically with uses extending to hook-up wire and co-axial cables. Radio frequencies use it as an efficient insulator and PCB’s for microwave frequencies too find PTFE’s importance. Low cost applications use PTFE as a plain bearer, gears and slide plates with better performance index than acettal and nylon. PTFE finds its presence in musical instruments as one among its many myriad applications that PTFE dons. Spanning applications, the PTFE Market is expected to display rapid growth in forthcoming period
The PTFE micro powders are made from virgin polytetrafluroethylene resin or recycled PTFE waste. Asia Pacific is witnessing highest market share for Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) markets and will do so in forecast period as well. India with a rising population, better investment cycles and fully developed economies as well as progressive government initiatives are witness to high growth in this region. Growth in Asia Pacific is motivated by the sheer predominance of the region’s growth in chemical industry. Thermoplastic is the most favorable and inks though being the topmost segment in PTFE market, thermoplastic holds near to three-fourth of market share. Inks need to be supplemented with different additives in order to be useful in various end-user industries and balance of additive selection has to be just right otherwise this may destroy the entire formulation. Furthermore, PTFE micro powders is the powder of choice even for inks because of strong properties of micro powders such as small particle size, abrasion /rub resistance and blocking.
