43], the yield stress versus strain rate and temperature for PP and PCTFE
are plotted in Fig.
Abbreviations: BP = body-powered, DIP = distal interphalangeal, MCP = metacarpophalangeal, PCTFE

Bridging the gap between PCTFE
laminates and Cold-Form-Foil are ALU-LOOK[TM] thermoformable films that mimic the metallic looks of CFF.
A comprehensive review and investigation into this problem for PTFE, FEP, PEA, and PCTFE
, including chemistry, surface topography, depth of etch, and depth profile for functional groups, can be found in many publications from the University of Connecticut and others (23-25).
Requiring only 40 psig actuating air pressure to function in systems ranging from vacuum to 500 psig, the patent-pending design utilizes surface mount technology to reduce leak paths, internal volume and dead volume, and PCTFE
seats to eliminate leaks.

Sites on three continents provide mono PVC and PP films, high barrier laminates containing COC and PCTFE
(Aclar[R] and VapoShield[TM], sustainable blister films, as well as lidding and pouch laminates.
These blister films contain PCTFE
Aclar [R] UltRx6000 thermoform film and provide pharmaceutical blister packaging with an especially high barrier against moisture.
The accompanying table provides data on the properties of two new PCTFE
fluoropolymers designed to provide high moisture barrier to multi-layer pharmaceutical and chemical bottles and monolayer tubing.
Tekniflex PGA and PGOA films are based on multilayer lamination constructions using PETG, EVOH, and PCTFE
