Diversity—From an Individual PTFE Fiber to Endless Applications


Protective Apparel

Teflon™ PTFE supplied as woven or non-woven roll goods is converted into protective jackets and coveralls.


Sporting Goods

Teflon™ PTFE may be incorporated into athletic padding as a surface additive or an inner fabric liner. The addition of PTFE allows padding to be easily donned or doffed. Additionally, surface PTFE layers are inherently stain-resistant and inner fabric liners resist odor and mildew.

Performance Apparel

Teflon™ PTFE may be woven or knitted into performance fabrics to provide friction relief (non-chafing) and fluid resistance. Teflon™ PTFE fabrics can be waterproof and breathable as well as have a soft hand and a cool, comfortable touch.

Industrial Composites

Teflon™ PTFE may be used as the inner layer of filament wound composites, providing a chemically impenetrable barrier. Alternatively, our wet-laid PTFE non-woven (shown at left) may be used as a chemically resistant surface veil on specialty composites.
