October 20, 2013
3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroplastic PFA is characterised by its almost universal chemical inertness. Dyneon PFA is the fluorothermoplastic closest in its product properties to PTFE products. Being a fluorothermoplastic, it can be processed with different moulding techniques.
One of them being transfer moulding, the technique applied to line the inside of a valve with PFA.
