Solid molded PTFE Lined expansion joints are used when other materials aren’t appropriate. They are corrosion-resistant and made to withstand high pressure and temperatures with space-saving design.
PTFE is a synthetic fluoropolymer which finds numerous applications due to its non-stick nature and resistance to certain chemicals. Elastomeric covering on solid PTFE and PTFE-lined metallic Expansion Joints are designed for environmentally corrosive applications. A Kevlar® reinforcement overlay can be used to increase working pressures and provide additional safety factors for PTFE Expansion Joints.
