Fluoropolymer (PTFE / PVDF) Specialty Polymers and Resins

Fluon® PFA Resins
from AGC Chemicals Americas, Inc.

Copolymers of tetrafluoroethylene and a perfluorinated vinyl ether, Fluon ® PFA Resins can be used over a wide range of temperatures from extremely low to high (-200 °C to 260 °C) without losing excellent chemical, electrical, mechanical and surface properties. PFA resins retain many... [See More]

Low Shrinkage Specialty Compounds
from Cri-Tech, Inc.

The LS, Low Shrinkage compounds are designed to give part shrinkage (out of the mold) and post-curing operation comparable to a nitrile or similar elastomer. In most cases, tooling changes are not required when switching over to an LS compound. NPC indicates no post cure required to achieve high... [See More]

Chemraz® Perfluoroelastomers (FFKM)
from Greene, Tweed & Co.

FFKM, also known as perfluoroelastomer, is a family of elastomeric materials that contains higher amounts of fluorine than FKM, and features higher temperature ratings, up to approximately 325 °C. For this reason, FFKM is often the preferred choice for high-temperature o-rings. FFKMs also have... [See More]
