A PFA o-ring brings with it a number of benefits, these include:

  • A cost effective alternative to traditional, standard PTFE o-ring.
  • High levels of resistance to gas permeability
  • Comes out with top marks in keeping out potentially aggressive chemicals• Low friction levels, which promotes longer-term use of applications and equipment due to reduced wear and tear
  • A resistance to issues such as cold flow and compression that has been noted with solid o-rings
  • An adaptive force of sealing application

The encapsulation of a PFA o-ring has the same properties as an FEP, but there are a number of variations. The first difference is that it has greater heat resistance properties when working with applications over a temperature of 205C. A PFA seal also offers a greater level of resistance to chemicals, keeping out the majority of chemicals, due to a seamless join that is completed through a heat moulding process that is quite advanced in the industry.
