Chemfluor® PFA Tubing & Rod

Chemfluor® tubings are made using fluoropolymers under strictly controlled processing conditions.

Chemfluor® fluoropolymer tubings have outstanding chemical and physical properties and can be used in a broad range of temperatures, from -400°F to 500°F, depending on the polymer type. Chemfluor® tubings are available in a variety of different polymer types including FEP, PFA and PTFE. The primary differences among them are use temperature, clarity and mechanical strength, while several chemical and physical properties are common to all. No plasticizers, stabilizers or fillers are used, so they are pure and non- contaminating. Unlike metal and rubber alternatives, Chemfluor® tubings are non-corroding and non- oxidizing. Unlike other plastic materials, they are unaffected by solvents, acids and fuels.

PFA's stress crack resistance, excellent electrical properties and temperature-resistant properties make it ideal for use in cable coating, valve and pump linings, and insulating bushings.

PFA, which can operate in temperatures ranging from -320°F to 500°F, is chemically inert and virtually non-porous. Used in any application with high heat and chemical requirements, PFA's non-stick characteristics promote ease of movement of viscous, aggressive compounds, and prevent binding of proteins.
