PTFE textiles protect and preserve

The properties of Lenzing PROFILEN® PTFE make it a good general material for skin protection textiles.

PTFE yarns are characterized by:

  • extremely low friction in dry and wet condition
  • cooler, softer feel for less overheating
  • smooth, anti-adhesive surface that does not stick to wounded skin
  • water-repellent and non-absorbent
  • absolutely hydrophobic and oleophobic
  • durable due to its high resistance to chemicals and temperature during cleaning and disinfection

Lenzing PROFILEN® PTFE applications:

  • clothing for patients with skin diseases, such as psoriasis or neurodermatitis
  • wound dressings / mattress coverings to prevent decubitus
  • socks for sports (running, hiking)
  • socks for diabetics
  • protective clothing in combination with aramid and other raw yarns
