expanded PTFE (ePTFE) is a specially processed Polytetrafluoroethylene.
By orientating the PTFE molecules, ePTFE is beeing self-reinforced and offers much better
tensile strength and lower creep than standard non-orientated PTFE.
Monodirectional ePTFE is beeing orientated in just one single direction.
Multidirectional ePTFE is beeing orientated in several
directions and therefore offers high strength and creep resistance in longitudinal and transversal direction.
FluorTex GmbH is one of the leading manufacturers of e PTFE.
Huge investment into R&D guarantees technological advantage in materials and production.
