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 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.

I bought this Teflon rod to use for a 3D printer I was building based on the designs in reprap.org. The rod was solid and came in the right specs that were listed. Read morePublished on December 26, 2010 by John T. Smith
