Best-in-Class Thermal Performance and Chemical Resistance

Algoflon® is the main trade name for PTFE products commercialized by Solvay Specialty Polymers.

Algoflon® PTFE is a high-molecular-weight thermoplastic consisting wholly of carbon and fluorine atoms. Parts made of Algoflon® PTFE offer performance at extreme temperatures, chemical inertness, corrosion resistance, and mechanical toughness among their many properties.

Why Algoflon® PTFE?

  • Chemical inertness
  • Outstanding temperature resistance
  • Extremely low coefficient of friction
  • Exceptional release and water repellent properties
  • Outstanding heat resistance

Market Applications


The benefits of Algoflon® PTFE resin make it the preferred plastic for many applications and different processing techniques, like coatings and films. Its excellent properties make it suitable for use in many industries, such as the chemical industry for vessel linings and pipework for reactive and corrosive chemicals. Algoflon® PTFE is also used for industrial applications, such as plain bearings, gears, side plates. Where used as a lubricant, it reduces friction wear and energy consumption of machinery.


Product Line 

Algoflon® D PTFE Aqueous Dispersions are ideally suited for coatings and films. They can be processed by impregnation on fibers and fabrics to impart non-stick behavior and improve the substrate’s chemical resistance. They can be cast onto metal substrates to create a protective barrier with low surface energy and high chemical resistance. Plus, they can be used as a processing aid for plastics compounding.

Algoflon® DF PTFE Fine Coagulated Powders are agglomerates of fine particles with a high surface area. They can be processed by paste extrusion into tubing as well as electrical and mechanical tapes. They can also be expanded into porous products used as filtration membranes and high-performance textiles and fibers.
