PFA (PerFluoroAlkoxy) is a transparent and flexible fluoropolymer that is chemically inert to most industrial chemicals and solvents. Acme Plastic has a variety of PFA products to fit all of your needs.
PFA (PerFluoroAlkoxy) is a transparent and flexible fluoropolymer that has a low coefficient of friction with excellent chemical and stress resistance at high temperatures.
What is PFA plastic used for?
PFA plastic has a high resistance to solvents, acids, and bases, making it an ideal choice for handling aggressive and corrosive chemicals.
Is PFA the same as Teflon?
PFA (PerFluoroAlkoxy) and Teflon are different types of fluoropolymers. Teflon is a common name for PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene). Fluoropolymers have a high resistance to solvents, acids, and bases. Both PFA and Teflon have a very low coefficient of friction and have anti-sticking properties. One major difference is Teflon has a higher melting temperature than PFA, making it a popular choice for non-stick cookware. Another difference is PFA is more flexible than Teflon, making it ideal for tubing applications.
