What You Don’t Know About FEP/PFA Injection Mold is Costing You Money

A fluoropolymer is one of the growing nunumbersf fluorocarbon-based polymers. They are widely used in healthcare applications due to their biocompatibility, lubricity, sterilizability, chemical inertness, thermal stability, barrier properties, and high purity. However, when compared with other resins, they are significantly more expensive and require special techniques to injection mold due to their shear sensitivity, […]
