Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is also commonly known under the trade name Teflon. Teflon is classified as a thermoplastic and often used in the solid state as a surface coating, because PTFE is very resistant to bases and acids, and gives very low adhesion properties to the surface. The latter advantage makes it possible to use PTFE in areas where high friction would otherwise be expected. In the field of dispersion, however, PTFE is used as an additive to achieve better lubricating properties. It is important to dissolve PTFE in a liquid component without losing the properties which are important for low friction values. With the DISPERMAT® of VMA-Getzmann, you can develop optimal formulations in the laboratory.
