MCP Engineering Plastics Limited are PCTFE Sheet suppliers and PCTFE Sheet manufacturers.
PCTFE, Polychlorotrifluoroethylene is a melt-processable chlorofluoropolymer. The presence of a chlorine atom, which has a greater atomic radius than that of fluorine, gives rise to irregularities in the polymer chain and reduces polymer crystallinity. This results in PCTFE having a relatively low melting point among fluoropolymers. It is also the polymer with the lowest water vapor and moisture absorption rate. It resists ignition because its Limiting Oxygen Index (LOI), which is greater than 95.
PCTFE Sheet resists attack by most chemicals, a property that is exhibited due to the presence of its high fluorine content. It is oxidation resistant because it does not have any hydrogen atoms.
MCP Engineering Plastics Limited, based on between Hertfordshire and Essex, UK are a PCTFE sheet supplier to a range of industries and manufacturers. Our skived PCTFE sheets provide unsurpassed precision and cleanliness for a wide range of critical applications.
The main field of application of PCTFE is cryogenics due to the fact that it is the fluoropolymer that best retains its mechanical properties at extremely low temperatures and is therefore the least fragile of the fluoropolymers. PCTFE Sheet is recommended for cryogenic application and handling of gases. PCTFE Sheet has better mechanical properties than other fluoropolymers and low permeability.
PCTFE is incompatible with alkaline metals and in some cases with organic amines. Its use is not recommended at temperatures above 150°C.
MCP Engineering Plastics Limited, based on the Hertfordshire and Essex county border, are an established and experienced PCTFE Sheet supplier and manufacturer to a range of industries throughout the UK. We have a wide range of PCTFE materials, in all sizes, ready for despatch, ex-stock.
