PTFE (TFE) and Kynar – PVDF both are on allocation.

Teflon  product (TFE) and also   manufacturing requires a mineral called Fluorspar that’s mined in Mongolia and China. The worldwide need for this mineral has grown significantly, and also the supply has tightened. materials have high heat resistance, excellent chemical resistance and very low co-efficient of friction (slick) and is utilised in a great deal of applications from non-stick fry pots and pans to tape for home use. This particular mineral is the critical raw materials within the production of fluoropolymers, fluorolubricants and lots of refrigerants.This escalating demand combined with general shortage of raw materials is mainly responsible for a dramatic price increase (almost double in the last year), shortages, and we expect these two factors to keep at it in the near future.
