Polytetrafluoroethylene Mesh for Many Types of Blueprinting Machine: Preparation and Characterization
Adopting domestic polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) turning plate as materials, a new isosceles triangle macroporous mesh was designed. The correspond mould and the special fixtures for continuous punching of ultra-thin plastic sheet were successfully developed. The PTFE mesh was manufactured through computer numerically controlled (CNC) punch. In terms of electronic universal testing machines and microcomputer differential thermal balance, mechanical properties and thermostability of the PTFE mesh were studied. The results indicated that the tensile strength of PTFE mesh is 11.98 MPa which is greater than the literature value of 7.77 MPa, and its heat-resisting performance is excellent without decomposition prior to 312 oC.
