Teflon™ PFA: The Chemical Resistance King of Fluoropolymer Linings

When you talk about fluoropolymer lining protection against chemical corrosion and permeation, PFA (perfluoroalkoxy) delivers the highest level of resistance. We can thank the strength of the Fluorine-Carbon bond within the PFA polymer chain for its incredible inertness. These bonds are so tight and enduring that they simply do not allow other atoms or molecules […]

Kynar® PVDF – A Versatile, Effective, Economical Fluoropolymer Lining

Of the fluoropolymer linings available, PVDF (Polyvinylidene Fluoride) is the most commonly used. And with good reason. PVDF offers excellent chemical corrosion and permeation protection in a wide variety of applications. It’s very effective against chlorinated and brominated solvents. It’s very malleable and easily shaped. When bound to a substrate, depending on the chemicals involved, […]

Fluoropolymer Linings Explained: What They Are, When to Use Them

When working with chemicals, the job of a lining is to either stop the chemicals from eating through their containment or to stop the container itself from contaminating the chemicals within.  In the first case, we’re fighting chemical corrosion and permeation.  In the second, we’re protecting chemicals that require ultra high purity to be effective. […]
