An Overview of Altaflo Products
Since our inception, we have maintained a consistent focus on the critical requirements of some of the most demanding applications.
To begin our process, we select only the finest, high-performance resins within each product category. Despite the fact that there are a great many resin producers and even more grades in every range, we use only high molecular weight resin products that ensure peak performance. Including these resins in our finished products means we can provide the highest degree of stress crack resistance, chemical resistance, flex life and superior overall performance.
A strictly enforced series of process controls is established once we have made our resin selection, to ensure maximum efficiency as we continue to produce tight tolerance products that meet or exceed industry standards. Should they be needed, we are also able to provide tighter tolerances and non-standard dimensions, pigments or secondary services. As a part of our continued dedication to a culture of quality at Altaflo, we have committed to having our tubing tested and certified to the NSF Certifications 51, 61 and 372 in addition to having already earned ISO 9001: 2015 Certification.
ALTAFLUOR 100 PTFE: Highly Resistant and Flexible
PTFE (poly-tetra-fluoro-ethylene) is the most flexible of the standard fluoropolymers with the ability to stand up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit as well as being resistant to highly corrosive liquids and gasses. While it is available in continuous lengths from stock, overall lengths may be limited with regards to larger sizes due to batch processing. However, should you require tubing in longer continuous lengths, our FEP and PFA products could prove to be a capable substitute.
ALTAFLUOR 200 High-Performance FEP: Idea for Visual Application
FEP (fluorinated-ethylene-propylene) is an excellent option for those considering a more economical and efficient option. FEP will provide excellent chemical and broad temperature resistance and is almost totally transparent. This makes it ideal for fluid monitoring applications, UV light transmission and other visual applications. FEP is also readily available in almost any continuous length and may be heat formed or flared for use with flare fittings.
ALTAFLUOR 350 THV: Flexibility and Versatility
THV is a terpolymer that consists of tetrafluoroethylene, hexafluoropropylene and vinylidene fluoride. Its unique combination of properties makes it a preferred choice for a range of applications. While it has the flexibility of traditional PVC flex tubing, it possesses a chemical resistance that is nearer to FEP. Not only does it have a better rate of UV transmission, but also excellent permeation resistance and bond ability with other materials.
ALTAFLUOR 400 High-Performance PFA: Durability and Resistance
PFA (per-fluoro-alkoxy) is a match made in heaven for applications that require extreme chemical resistance as well as resistance to high and fluctuating temperatures. Also available in long continuous lengths and on clean-room compatible reels, PFA is also able to stand up to much higher temperatures and more aggressive chemicals than FEP.
ALTAFLUOR 480 UHP High-Performance PFA: Extreme Chemical Resistance
Critical industries in need of extreme resistance to corrosive chemicals and lowest extractable requirements will be impressed by UHP PFA ( Ultra high purity per-fluoro-alkoxy). UHP is housed in special packaging that is designed for use in clean-room applications and fully customized semiconductor grade cleaning protocols are available upon request. UHP and PFA may also be heat formed and used with flare fittings.
ALTAFLUOR 550 KYNAR FLEX PVDF: Abrasion and Temperature Resistant
PVDF (poly-vinylidene) is a polymer that provides staunch resistance to abrasion and is suitable for use in products that have a necessity for moderate chemical resistance and temperature exposure. Additional varieties of KYNAR PVDF are also available to meet specific application requirements.
