Afton Plastics 440HP PFA Compression Molded Rod
Categories: Polymer; Thermoplastic; Fluoropolymer; Perfluoroalkoxy (PFA)

Material Notes: PFA is a high-performance, melt processable fluoropolymer that exhibits similar characteristics to PTFE. It performs exceedingly well in extreme thermal and chemical environments. While originally designed for use in extrusion and injection molding, Afton Plastics processes Chemours Teflon™ PFA 440HP in large diameter, 12” long, compression-molded rod.

Product Benefits: Temperature range: -320°F to +500°F, • Exceptional dielectric insulation properties, • Negligible moisture absorption, • Low coefficient of friction, • Non-stick surface, • Very low gas permeation and outgassing, • May be welded with hot air welding equipment, • Improved thermal stability, • Chemically inert to industrial chemicals and solvents, • High resistance to outdoor weathering, • Does not support combustion, • Low metals and ion extractables.

Application: Pump housings and pipe linings, • Fluid handling or chemical processing equipment, • Wet bench equipment, • Tanks, • Semiconductor wafer carriers, • Life sciences, • Instrumentation for fluidic systems, • Hostile environments involving chemical, thermal, and mechanical stress • Food processing and packing equipment.

Made from Teflon®, a Chemours product, processed into shapes and components by Afton plastics.
