Today’s Patent- METHOD OF MOULDING TEFLON
PTEF or polytetrafluoroethylene is a type of polymer which is formed by reaction of many other repeating molecules. PTFE was discovered accidentally in 1938 by a young scientist Roy Plunkett looking for something else. PTFE is one of a class of plastics known as fluoropolymers and Teflon is a registered trade name of it.
It is the highly used plastic compound used in the market with a very high melting point. PTEF is used as a nonstick coating on pans, for the outer covering of wires because of its high electrical strength and water resistance nature.
On 1966 David C. Trimble was granted the patent for METHOD OF MOLDING TEFLON. U.S. Patent No. 3,235,636
he present innovation relates to the production of molded polymers of halohydrocarbons such as Teflon. The main objective behind this invention was to flourish a fundamental method for obtaining molded products from halogenated hydrocarbon polymers containing fluorine as the predominating halogen. Another reason was to develop a method for making products having broad sections of polytetrafluoroethylene
