Hyflon® PFA & MFA®

Hyflon® Perfluoroalkoxys are semi-crystalline, fully-fluorinated, melt-processable fluoropolymers. All Hyflon® fluoropolymers are classified according to ATDM D3370 standards. They have the highest thermal properties and exhibit the greatest chemical resistance of all commercial, melt-processable fluoropolymers.

Based upon their melting points, this family of products is divided into three series. These materials offer customized performance to meet specific efficiency and processing requirements. They are available in pellets, powders and dispersions.

Hyflon® PFA & MFA® Applications

Hyflon® PFA and MFA® offer a unique set of properties to meet extreme performance requirements, including Very cold temperature resistance, inherent flame resistance, chemical inertness, low surface energy, exceptional dielectric properties and excellent mechanical characteristics.

Automotive Wire & Cable

Jacket and Primary Insulation

Sophisticated control and sensing systems have stringent demands for their cabling which only fluoropolymers can deliver. For applications such as automotive push-pull cables, Hyflon® MFA® offers:

  • High temperature resistance
  • Chemical resistance
  • Smooth surface properties

Chemical Processing Industry (CPI)

Hyflon® PFA & MFA® offer their high purity, chemically-inertness and fire-resistance to CPI applications including, high purity coatings, protective linings and fluid & gas handling applications.

Hyflon® MFA® F can be widely used in the chemical process industry due to its virtually universal chemical resistance up to 220-230°C. Specific applications include protective linings of tanks, reactors and heat exchangers, tower packing and applications where FEP is also used.

The surface of Hyflon® MFA® is up to 10 times smoother than standard PFA improving cleanliness, reducing pressure drop and reducing wall build-up in slurries or mixtures.
