(UHP PFA) Altafluor 480
ALTAFLUOR® 480 UHP PFA Tubing & Pipe
ALTAFLUOR® 480 UHP PFA (ultra high purity perfluoroalkoxy) tubing and pipe are the products of choice for applications such as semiconductor and pharmaceutical process that require extreme chemical resistance while maintaining highest purity levels.
Although HP PFA Tubing is available in a variety of resin grades, ALTAFLUOR® 480 UHP PFA tubing and pipe are made exclusively from a high molecular weight, high purity resin that provides excellent chemical resistance, (even to common fluorosurfactants), highest purity levels, low permeation levels and smoothest surface finish.
Unlike standard HP PFA tubing products, ALTAFLUOR® 480 tubing has flex life values comparable to PTFE tubing.
ALTAFLUOR® 480 UHP PFA tubing is ideal for use with flare or conventional fittings.
ALTAFLUOR® 480 UHP PFA pipe may be joined using conventional threaded fittings or welded.
For non-high purity applications please view our ALTAFLUOR® 400 PFA Tubing & Pipe options.
Additional Low Permeation PFA Tubing is also available upon request.
