POREFLON*, made of porous 100% PTFE has four main features.
*POREFLON is a brand name.
PTFE, an acronym for polytetrafluoroethylene, is a type of fluororesin.
PTFE resin has very stable atomic chemical bonds, and high chemical and heat resistance. It is a general-purpose plastic used in many applications by the chemical and semiconductor industries and has been used to develop superior water treatment membranes.
PTFE is a general purpose plastic with excellent chemical and heat resistance.
The molecular structure of polyethylene has four hydrogen atoms (H) connected around two carbon atoms (C). When two hydrogen atoms (H) in polyethylene are replaced by fluorine atoms (F), it becomes polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF). In PTFE, all four of the hydrogen atoms in polyethylene are replaced by fluorine atoms, which have a large atomic radius to cover and protect the carbon-to-carbon chemical bonds, making, PTFE extremely stable.
