Product Description

The opaque white PTFE round rod has a standard tolerance and meets SAE Aerospace Material Specification AMS 3651. PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) resists most chemicals, typically withstands high temperatures, and has a low-friction surface that does not bond readily with other materials, giving it a nonstick characteristic. This material shares many of the same properties as other fluoropolymers, but generally withstands higher temperatures than FEP and ETFE.

Plastic refers to a group of synthetic or semi-synthetic materials that have been engineered to achieve specific properties. The most notable characteristics of plastics are its low weight, machinability, corrosion resistance, and typically good thermal and electrical insulating properties. Certain plastic grades also offer optical transparency similar to glass, low-friction or self-lubricating surfaces, and exceptional impact resistance. Depending on their properties, certain plastic grades can be used as alternatives to metal, glass, and ceramic. Unlike metal, plastic may experience creep, which is deformation caused by longtime exposure to a constant load.

Tensile strength, used to indicate the material’s overall strength, is the peak stress it can withstand before it breaks. Corrosion resistance describes the material's ability to prevent deterioration caused by atmosphere, moisture, or other medium. Wear resistance indicates the ability to prevent surface damage caused by contact with other surfaces. Toughness describes the material's ability to absorb energy before breaking, while hardness (commonly measured as indentation hardness) describes its resistance to permanent surface deformation. Impact resistance is the measure of a material’s ability to absorb a shock of energy before breaking.

I disagree with the one star reviewer. He is obviously not familiar with pure PTFE or Teflon's characteristics and so chose an unsuitable material for his application. If he wants a harder and more rigid plastic then he should have chosen Nylon, UHMW Polyethylene, Delrin or some other harder and stiffer plastic rod. All Teflon/PTFE I have bought, sheet or rod, has been identical in color and hardness. It is the nature of the pure material.

I have bought PTFE rod from Amazon and others from about 3/8" to 2" diameter and for my uses in body jewelry and low load bearings it is excellent stuff. Hard to glue though as very few glues will adhere to it. PTFE sheet is identical but is available with a surface treatment on one side that makes it much more glueable. I have used it for Dobsonian Telescope bearings.

it is 1/4" as advertised. works out great for a 10/22 buffer rod in the receiver and much cheaper. cut it to size. Had to sand it a little to fit in the 10/22.

Works perfectly for my use which was to replace a 30 yr old tip on wife's blind cane. Hers is different in that it is curved for use from a wheelchair. Bends easily using heat gun.

feel cheated,at about $4 an inch it should be 12 inches in length ,that is what I paid for but the product comes up short 11and 13/16. when aproduct is stated to be 12 inches long, itSHOULD BE 12 inches long especially at this price point!
