Expanded PTFE, a 100-percent pure PTFE resin, is manufactured by paste extrusion. The expansion process begins with paste extrusion of fine powder PTFE using typical lubricants or mineral spirits. The lubricant is then completely removed by heat. Expansion can be done by uniaxial or biaxial stretching of PTFE. The biaxial expanded PTFE has an increased tensile strength and improved recovery properties.
