What is the difference Polypropylene and Polymer PTFE/FEP Machining?

PTFE, known as plastic. Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene that has wide range of uses for different applications like for use as a PTFE Tape. PTFE is a fluorocarbon solid, as it is a high-molecular-weight compound consisting wholly of carbon and fluorine. Polytetrafluoroethylene has one of the lowest coefficients of friction against any solid know to man and this unique characteristic lends itself well to applications that desire low levels of resistance.
