The Superior Choice for High-Performance Applications
Perfluoro alkoxy (PFA) tubing shares many similarities with PTFE, such as its broad chemical resistance, wide temperature range, non-stick properties, low friction, and excellent electrical insulation performance. However, PFA tubing surpasses PTFE in several areas, such as lower gas permeability and increased transparency, making it an ideal choice when visibility and reliability are crucial.
Key Properties of PFA Tubing
PFA tubing boasts several features that make it the perfect material for even the most challenging environments:
- Low gas permeability
- Wide temperature range (-250°C to 260°C)
- Broad chemical resistance
- Limiting oxygen index (LOI) of 95%
- Higher thermal stability than FEP
- FDA-compliant for food processes
- USP Class VI compliant
- WRAS approved
- Highly translucent
- Near-zero moisture absorption
- High purity
- Exceptional mechanical strength, even at high temperatures.
- Diverse Applications of PFA Tubing
PFA tubing is suitable for a wide range of applications and is often the material of choice for demanding environments. Industries that commonly use our PFA extruded tubing include aerospace, electronics, chemical manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, environmental sciences, and food processing.
