At Phoenix Specialty Manufacturing, we specialize in creating custom-made stampings, washers, and shims. When it comes to shims, we have over 300 different raw materials available for you to choose from! Our shims can be made to fit any size or shape with outside diameters measuring anywhere between .040” to 6”to an ultra-thin .00005”. If you are needing shims for a special project, consider using PTFE. Here, we share with you some of the advantages of PTFE shims.
Why PTFE Trumps Other Materials
PTFE is perhaps most widely known for its nonstick properties. This is why baking pots and pans are often lined with a PTFE coating. It also has nonwetting properties, repelling both water and oils. For this reason, the material is very popular in the food industry. Since there is no moisture absorption, it is also ideal for use in pneumatic systems, where a low dew point is important.
Excellent temperature resistance is another excellent feature of PTFE. The material can operate at continuous temperatures as high as 500°F and as low as -454°F. The automotive, aerospace, and chemical engineering industries will find many great uses for PTFE shims because of this.
