Solvay Specialty Polymers Hyflon® PFA M620 Perfluoroalkoxy (PFA)
Categories: Polymer; Thermoplastic; Fluoropolymer; PFA

Material Notes: Hyflon PFA is a unique family of semi-crystalline, melt processable perfluoropolymers which combine excellent mechanical characteristics to unique properties such as chemical inertness, heat resistance, inherent flame resistance, low surface energy, and exceptional dielectric properties. Hyflon PFA resins have been designed to retain their properties over a wide range of temperatures from cryogenic to 250-260°C (482-500°F) and are the material of choice in applications such as linings in the Chemical Process Industry, specialty cables, semiconductor industry, aerospace, and other challenging industries. Hyflon PFA M620 is a low melt flow rate multi-purpose resin designed for pipe, cable, and stock shapes extrusion, injection, compression, and transfer molding. Hyflon PFA M620 has obtained UL758 recognition for continuous use at 250°C (482°F) and is an ASTM D3307 - Type VIII resin.

Additional Information: PROCESSING - Because PFA is corrosive in the melt, machinery used to process Hyflon should be lined with corrosion resistant alloys. Clean, reworked material can be used up to 25% in weight. HEALTH SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENT - Hyflon PFA M620 is a very inert polymer and it is not harmful if used and handled according to standard processing procedures. If handled inappropriately, it may release harmful toxic chemicals. Please refer to the Material Safety Data Sheets for more information on handling and safety. PACKAGING AND STORAGE - Hyflon PFA M620 resin is available in 25 kg (55 lbs) and 500 kg (1102 lbs) packaging. Though it has an indefinite shelf life, it is recommended to store it in a clean area, protected from direct sunlight and possible contamination.
