teflon rod is a type of plastic rod that contains PTFE or polytetrafluoroethylene. It is an engineering material that has good thermal resistance, chemical resistance, and low friction coefficient. It is also UV resistant and weathering resistant.

PTFE rods are extruded or molded from a PTFE resin (can contain recycled PTFE resin) and are used for manufacturing various gaskets, seals, and lubricating materials that work in corrosive media or electrical insulation parts. They can be processed by plunger extrusion, paste extrusion or molding.

They are available in different sizes, shapes and diameters. They are commonly used in piping systems all over the world.

The PTFE rod has a low co-efficient of friction, allowing for smooth movement in bearings, gears and slide plates. It is a very versatile material that is durable and can handle both high and low temperatures.

It is also chemically inert and virtually unaffected by acids up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. This makes it a preferred material for pump interiors, washers, and rings, as well as other sealing and filling parts.

PTFE rods can be filled with carbon, graphite or other fillers. Graphite is known for its improved chemical resistance to corrosive environments, and it is widely blended with PTFE in piston rings.

PTFE is used in many different industries for many applications, including anti-corrosion parts, chemical processing, medical devices and more. It is also a popular choice for non-stick cookware because it is strong and durable.
