Yes, PTFE material is recyclable, but the process is challenging due to its inert nature and high melting point. Full recycling of PTFE without compromising its properties remains a significant technical challenge in the industry.
Yes, PTFE can be used in high-temperature applications due to its exceptional thermal stability. It can withstand temperatures ranging from -200°C to 260°C (-328°F to 500°F) continuously and even higher temperatures for short durations without significant degradation.
Yes, PTFE is considered safe for food contact. It is inert and non-toxic, meaning it does not react with food or release harmful chemicals when in contact with food. However, it's important to note that PTFE should not be heated above its recommended temperature range during food processing to avoid potential health risks associated with overheating.
