Fluon perfluoroalkoxy (PFA) resins can be used over a wide range of temperatures (–200 to 260°C) and exhibit resistance to heat, chemicals, weather and aging. With an oxygen index of 95% or better, the noncombustible resins’ dielectric properties and nonstick characteristics make them suitable for numerous applications, including: valves, fittings and housings (photo); tubing and pipes; film and sheets; wire and cable; and blow-molded bottles. Fluon PFA is a melt-processible copolymer of tetrafluoroethylene and a perfluorinated vinyl ether. Fluon PFA has chemical, electrical and thermal properties almost identical to polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). However, Fluon PFA can be processed by conventional extrusion, injection molding, blow molding, compression molding, transfer molding and rotolining or molding techniques, says the manufacturer. — AGC Chemicals Americas Inc., Exton, Pa.
