Teflon™ and Tefzel™ Fluoropolymer Films

Features and Benefits

The unique properties of Teflon™ and Tefzel™ films make them useful for many diverse applications. These transparent, thermoplastic films can be heat-sealed, die-stamped, oriented, thermoformed, vacuum formed, heat bonded, welded, metalized, and laminated with many other materials like elastomers and plastics. They can also be used as hot-melt adhesives.

These non-wetting, non-charring films have no electrical tracking and offer:

  • Chemical compatibility, inertness, and solvent-resistance to nearly all chemicals
  • Superior anti-stick and low frictional properties with high resistance to impact and tearing
  • Useful physical properties at cryogenic temperatures
  • Long-term weather resistance, including a high transmittance of ultraviolet radiation and other radiation (except for far infrared [FIR])

These films come in a variety of gauges and surface treatments.


Teflon™ and Tefzel™ films can be used for various applications, including:

  • Composite part mold release
  • Anti-corrosive linings
  • Nonstick roll covers
  • Rupture disks
  • High-frequency microwave circuitry
  • Pharmaceutical cap liners
  • Sterile packaging
  • Cable insulation
  • Photovoltaic cell glazing
  • Anti-graffiti coverings
  • Erasable surface coverings
  • Fuel hose permeation barriers
  • Hot-melt adhesives
