we work with highly engineered Perfluoroalkoxy
We have an extensive history of injection molding filled and unfilled ultra and high performance thermoplastics resins (PEEK, PFA, FEP, Torlon®, Ultem®, EXTEM®, etc.), and partnering with world class polymer scientists and industry leading material suppliers to develop unique custom resin formulations to address our customers needs. This page highlights a few of the materials we commonly injection mold.
FEP and PFA are injection moldable, highly inert, compatible with most organic compounds, have good barrier properties and high continuous use temperatures. They are virtually impervious to chemical, enzyme and microbiological attack and stiffer than PTFE. The non-stick properties of these polymers can also be useful to reduce liquid, gel and powder adhesion. Fluoropolymers in general, have good dielectric properties and are resistant to atmospheric degradation.
PFA is significantly easier to mold than FEP, however, it is significantly more expensive.
- Higher continuous service temperature than FEP
- Maximum working temperature 500°F
- Difference in molecular structure gives PFA improved flow, creep resistance and thermal stability.
