PTFE has found numerous uses in oilfield and chemcial applications, as it is the most chemical resistant thermoplastic available. It offers low friction and sealability not found with most plastic materials, however it is subject to cold flow or creep. Adding fillers such as glass, moly, carbon and bronze can reduce this creep. PTFE is used for valve seats, stem packing, pump packing, downhole tools, bearing rings and spacer rings.
