Cobetter Skived PTFE Membrane is a porous membrane, produced by skiving process based on sintering technology. The PTFE granules are sintered and formed under high temperature and high pressure molding, then skived into a membrane with a specific thickness by professional skiving equipment, and converted into roll and more applicable forms. It is worth mentioning that the pore size of the membrane has been determined in the early sintering process, combine with Cobetter's special skiving process and professional process control, our skived PTFE membrane ensures the consistency of the pore size and the stability of the pore structure. The skived PTFE is made of 100% PTFE material without any additives, reinforcing agents, and no supporting layer. Compared with the expanded PTFE membrane, sintered and skived PTFE membrane can better exert the excellent physical and chemical properties of Polytetrafluoroethylene PTFE material itself. In terms of formats, Cobetter offers standard rolls, sheets, die cut discs, connected with adhesives, and various other forms.
