Intro to PTFE Membranes

On-Demand Webinar

With: Gerry DiBattista
VP, Marketing – PTFE, Porex

Why watch this on-demand webinar

In this webinar, you will learn about a unique porous polymer membrane technology that is not as well-known as common cast and expanded membranes.  Porex Virtek PTFE membranes feature a robust and durable membrane made from 100% pure sintered PTFE with properties such as excellent temperature and chemical resistance along with its natural ultra-hydrophobicity.  The unique manufacturing process that utilizes both sintering followed by skiving can target specific customer requirements for pore size, density, and membrane thickness that affect air flow and water entry pressure, making these membranes ideal for water and dust-tight venting applications.  This membrane technology is also a naturally diffuse reflector of UV light and is widely used as a  reflective media.

What you will learn in the webinar:

  • Learn how sintered PTFE membranes are designed and manufactured
  • See the technology in action in specific application examples across life sciences, automotive, electronics and industrial markets
  • Better understand the advantages of a pure sintered PTFE membrane over other membrane technologies
  • Understand how the robustness and consistency of the manufacturing process can increase performance of your product
