PTFE vs PFA
Fluoropolymers share several unique properties which make them suitable for use in the automotive, aerospace, oil and gas and medical industries.
PTFE, PFA and FEP are the most well-known and common fluoroplastics. So what, exactly, are their differences?
PTFE vs PCTFE
The difference between PTFE and PCTFE is mainly in the chemical structure. The addition of one Chlorine atom in place of one Fluorine atom leads to a massive change in its properties and application.
PTFE vs PEEK
High-Performance Plastic are distinguished primarily by their temperature stability, but also their mechanical properties.
Often chosen for applications requiring good chemical resistance, performance at high temperatures, low coefficient of friction and high strength they can be found in many demanding applications across a variety of industries such as Oil & Gas, Aerospace, Nuclear and Chemical, but how do you decide which material has the properties required for your specific application?

What is a Slide Bearing?
A common problem with structures can be that due to a result of thermal, seismic, or differential force, the structure can end up moving. To counter this movement Slide Bearings are introduced into the structure.
