Safety, stability and quality with our DIN 9021 PTFE washers21 September 2023
Since June 2023, Bülte has been offering our DIN 9021 PTFE washer in its catalog. This well-known standardized washer, available from Bülte in natural polyamide, 30% glass-fibre reinforced PA and PP, is a flat washer conforming to DIN 9021, which is a technical standard issued by the German Standards Institute (Deutsches Institut für Normung) for flat washers.
DIN 9021 washers are now also made from PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene, known by its commercial name Teflon), a plastic material that is resistant to high temperatures and corrosion.
Teflon - for which applications?
If you are looking for DIN 9021 Teflon washers, it probably means that you need washers for specific applications.
These are often used where properties such as chemical resistance and lubrication are required.
They can be useful in demanding environments where other materials may not work as well.
Frequently used for specific properties such as :
- Chemical industry : these PTFE washers are resistant to many aggressive chemicals, making them ideal for applications in the chemical industry.
- Food and pharmaceutical industry : because of their resistance to chemicals, corrosion and non-stick properties, Teflon washers are used in the manufacture of equipment for food and pharmaceutical processing.
- Electrical and electronics industry : They can be used as electrical or thermal insulators in various components.
- High-temperature applications : Teflon can withstand high temperatures, making it a suitable material for applications where other plastics might melt.
- Automotive industry : These washers can be used in various parts of the engine and transmission systems because of their resistance to heat and corrosion.
- Valves and piping : Teflon washers are used in a variety of aerospace components and systems.
- Aerospace : Because of their light weight and resistance to extreme temperatures, Teflon washers are used in a variety of aerospace components and systems.
- Marine applications : Teflon's corrosion resistance makes it a useful material for marine equipment, such as boats and offshore platforms.
In summary, DIN 9021 PTFE washers offer a versatile solution for improving the reliability, stability and durability of mechanical joints, making them a popular choice in many industries.
DIN 9021 washers are commonly used in a variety of industrial and construction applications to ensure adequate load distribution and prevent fasteners from loosening over time.
