Temperature sensitivity of teflon (PTFE)

PTFE is an excellent diffuser material for instruments exposed to the elements: It has a low coefficient of thermal expansion (0.000122mm per degree Celcius) It has a low moisture absorption (< 0.01%) It is stable against damage by UV radiation The following graph shows the measured temperature-sensitivity of teflon for the temperature range 19 degrees Celcius and 45 degrees Celcius.
