PFA – Perfluoralkoxy Copolymer
Fluorinated hydrocarbon with a high-molecular, partly crystalline structure. Compared to PTFE, it has additional side chains consisting of perfluorated alkoxy groups.
PFA can be processed using thermoplastic production methods and offers chemical and thermal properties equal to those of PTFE. PFA labware is translucent to transparent, non-porous and particularly useful in high-purity work. Big components with a total weight of several kilograms can be fabricated in a „single shot“ by using transfer moulding.
