The fastest growth overall for fluoropolymers will be in smaller-volume resins, such as perfluoroalkoxy (PFA) polymers, polyvinyl fluoride (PVF) films, and perfluorosulfonic acid polymers.
A new custom perfluoroalkoxy (PFA) manifold resists corrosion and heat in aggressive chemistry applications.
At the end of this central tube, four valves were connected to different PFA (Perfluoroalkoxy) tubing (an inert material impervious to [O.sub.2] diffusion) for water sampling, water pressure monitoring in the section, gas inflow (the test interval was flushed with argon) and gas outflow; and (2) An inflatable packer positioned closing the borehole mouth.
Hanson said that many valves produced for these applications are injection molded of PEA, or perfluoroalkoxy, another fluoropolymer.
The SYGEF[R] PVDF HP Flex Tubing System offers a cost-effective solution for the conveyance of ultrapure water and chemicals versus PFA (perfluoroalkoxy) and FEP (fluorinated ethylene propylene) resin based tubing systems.
Perfluoroalkoxy group [CF.sub.2] = [CF.sub.2] location; excluded from crystal lattice; enters chain folds or amorphous region.
* MFA (perfluoroalkoxy modified with methylvinylether) is the only alternative film that costs more than FEP.
Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and a copolymer of tetrafluoroethylene and a perfluoroalkoxy monomer (PFA) were found to be superior to ethylene tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE), FKM or Nylon 12 in resistance to methanol containing fuels, with Nylon 12 exhibiting the poorest resistance overall (ref.
By product type, the global fluoropolymer market is segmented into polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), polyvinyl fluoride (PVF), polychlorotrifluoroethylene (PCTFE), polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF), fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP), perfluoroalkoxy polymer (PFA) and other.
Pictured is a custom Dual-Shaft Mixer equipped with a PEEK (poly-etheretherketone) high speed disperser and a two-wing Anchor agitator completely coated with black Teflon PFA, a perfluoroalkoxy copolymer resin with a high level of inertness.
Among other product lines, DuPont highlighted Teflon PFA, a perfluoroalkoxy copolymer resin available in pellet or powder.
