ChemFilm® PFA fluoropolymer film is manufactured by Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics from perfluoroalkoxy (PFA) resin. This film offers the highest continuous use temperature 260°C (500°F) of any melt-processable fluoropolymer film.
ChemFilm® PFA film offers many of the performance properties of PTFE in a clear, transparent form, and can be:
ChemFilm® PFA PG film offers a combination of characteristics:
ChemFilm® PFA WG is an ideal economical solution for applications that don’t require high aesthetic standards, such as hot melt adhesive (welding tape) application. PFA WG grade possesses all physical, mechanical, and thermal properties of PFA film, while offering up to 25% savings.
The combination of chemical resistance and high-temperature resistance over a wide frequency range make NORTON® PFA film an ideal component for circuit board fabricators, flat cable, and electrical insulation applications. Product thickness availability from 0.0005” through 0.010” at widths up to 60” offers circuit board designers flexibility in structure design.
The high-temperature resistance and non-wetting surface of ChemFilm® PFA make it an ideal material for use as a high-temperature release film or bagging film for composite manufacturers. The continuous use temperature of 260°C (500°F) and a melt point 310°C (590°F) meet the needs of new resin systems requiring a 230°C (446°F) cure temperature.
