PTFE is widely used as a thread seal tape in plumbing applications, largely replacing paste thread dope. Therefore, other fluoropolymers are still needed for some specific applications where PTFE is not completely suitable. Commercially, PTFE is made by two predominant processes namely granular polymer and dispersion of a polymer of much lower molecular weight and finer particle size. In the early 1960s Beldam Crossley became one of the first UK firms to process PTFE Polymers. It is also an excellent insulator over a wide range of frequency and temperatures. Our Armorlene® PTFE portfolio is a fit-for-purpose solution designed primarily for dynamic sealing applications. Thus it matches PTFE’s outstanding chemical resistance. PFOA and PFOS are found in every American person’s blood stream in the parts per billion range, though those concentrations have decreased by 70% for PFOA and 84% for PFOS between 1999 and 2014, which coincides with the end of the production and phase out of PFOA and PFOS in the US. 61 62 The general population has been exposed to PFOA through massive dumping of C8 waste into the ocean and near the Ohio River Valley.
