PTFE vs. PEEK

High-performance plastics are characterized primarily by their temperature resistance, but also by their mechanical properties. They are often chosen for applications that require good chemical resistance, performance at high temperatures, low coefficient of friction and high strength. They are found in many demanding applications in a variety of industries including oil...

Silicon adhesives vs. acrylic adhesives

Silicone and acrylic adhesives are those adhesives most commonly used in polyimide tapes. Polyimide adhesive tapes consist of two layers: the polyimide film and the adhesive that is applied to this film. Although silicone adhesives are most commonly used for the adhesive layer, many applications require the tape to have...

Silicone vs. FKM

Silicone vs. FKM - What are the differences? Silicone and FKM compete in many applications. This article examines the properties of silicone rubber and how it compares to fluororubber, an elastomer based on fluororubber (FKM). Although silicone and fluororubber are quite similar in properties, the fluorine groups (trifluoropropyl) provide significant differences...

Thermoset vs. Thermoplastic

Comparison of thermoset and thermoplastic materials According to DIN 7724, plastics (also known as plastics or plastics) are divided into thermoplastics, thermosets, elastomers and thermoplastic elastomers on the basis of their mechanical behavior. Plastics are produced synthetically from raw materials such as crude oil. Because of the organic carbon or silicon...
