Raw material information
PFA-Flex is a modified version of standard PFA and outperforms regular PFA grades by a higher mechanical strength when being under a permanent dynamical and mechanical stress.
The bending fatigue strength is excellent and among the highest of all fluoroplastic materials according to MIT-values.
These great mechanical characteristics of our PFA-flex tubes offer a considerably longer life time in application areas, in which tubes are in a constant movement. This leads to an increased equipment safety, a reduction of maintenance requirements and, therefore, to a reduction of operating costs.
- Outstanding bending fatigue strength
- Higher life-time under dynamical and mechanical strain
- All other chemical and electrical properties are at the same outstanding level of standard PFA
APT produces PFA-flex-tubing from a minimum inner diameter of 0,10mm to a maximum diameter of 110 mm or 0.004” to 4.000”.
Within this range we manufacture any desired dimension in natural transparent or coloured.
Samples of our PFA-flex-tubes in standard dimensions are available on request.
Depending on customer’s demands, PFA-flex-tubes can be packaged in defined ring lengths, coiled on spools or supplied in cut-off length.
PFA-flex-tubes are being used in applications where the material is exposed to extreme movements and high mechanical stress. Typical applications are:
- Mechanical engineering
- Laboratory techniques and process engineering
- Painting technology
- Robotic applications
