SAE AMS3669 Revision G, February 1, 2012
Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) Sheet, Molded Premium Grade, As Sintered
Includes all amendments and changes through Stabilization Notice (No longer revised / updated) , February 2012
Published By:SAE International (SAE)
This specification covers virgin, unfilled polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) in the form of sheet, manufactured by compression molding and sintering.
This sheet has been used typically for machined parts requiring chemical inertness up to 500 °F (260 °C), with better mechanical properties and/or electrical properties than AMS3667, but usage is not limited to such applications.
Sheet covered by this specification is classified as follows:
Type 1 For parts requiring chemical inertness and good mechanical and electrical properties up to 500 °F (260 °C). Testing of all specified properties is required.
Type 2 For parts requiring chemical inertness and good mechanical properties up to 500 °F (260 °C), where electrical insulation is not a consideration. Dielectric strength test (3.3.4) is not required.
Unless a specific type is ordered, Type 1 shall be supplied.
