PFA Resins

Fluon® PFA Resins

Fluon PFAFluon® PFA Resins are copolymers of tetrafluoroethylene and a perfluorinated vinyl ether. They can be used over a wide range of temperatures from extremely low to high (-200 °C to 260 °C) without losing excellent chemical, electrical, mechanical and surface properties.

PFA resins retain many inherent characteristics and similar properties of PTFE. However, PFA resins can be processed using conventional thermoplastic techniques including:

  • Extrusion molding
  • Injection molding
  • Blow molding
  • Electrostatic powder coating

With an oxygen index of 95% or better, these noncombustible resins can be used in various fields. They offer outstanding weatherability (no reduction or deterioration by direct sunlight, wind, rain and exhaust gas). In addition, their characteristics do not change when exposed to the outdoors for a long period of time. Fluon® PFA resin compounds are also available.

Manufactured without PFOA! For more information, click here.
