PTFE (TFE) and Kynar both are in short supply.

Teflon  product (TFE) as well as -PVDF  manufacturing requires a mineral called Fluorspar that’s mined in Mongolia and China. The worldwide need for this mineral has increased significantly, and also the supply has tightened. materials have high heat resistance, excellent chemical resistance and really low co-efficient of friction (slippery) and is utilized in a bunch of purposes from non-stick fry pots and pans to tape for personal use. This specific mineral is actually a essential raw material in the production of fluoropolymers, fluorolubricants and quite a few refrigerants.This increasing amount of demand coupled with general shortage of raw materials has caused a dramatic price increase (almost double throughout the last year), shortages, and we expect both these factors to continue in the near future.
