Right from the start, PTFE rods can give your project a smooth finish. PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene or Teflon®) is a slippery, waxy plastic that is resistant to most chemicals, and can be used in many electrical and mechanical applications. PTFE can also be molded into rods, tubes, and sheets. As a plastic rod, this material can be used for seals and gaskets, anti-friction bearings, linings and coatings, and more. A Teflon rod is also virtually resistant to corrosion and can sustain very high temperatures. Plastic welding rods are highly effective at welding plastic tanks and chemical processing equipment. Zoro also has a super selection of acetal rods, ground rods & clamps, PTFE sheets, PTFE cords, and UHMW polyethylene sheets.
