PFA LABWARE - PROPERTIES AND ADVANTAGES

Description

PFA (perfluoralkoxy) is a fluoropolymer with very low friction coefficient.

Thanks to its flexibility, high resistance to acids and optical tanslucence, this material can be used in the more corrosive environments.

The essential features are the following:

 

EXCELLENT TEMPERATURE STABILITY

PFA trace analysis labware maintains its stability at temperatures from -200 ºC to 260 ºC (-328 ºF to 500 ºF).

NO LEACHABLE METALS

PFA is manufactured without metals such as calcium, aluminum, iron, magnesium, nickel, copper, manganese or zinc. These metals can leach into samples from other containers, and contaminate samples.

SUPERIOR CHEMICAL RESISTANCE

PFA is inert with most reagents, including nitric and hydrochloric acid routinely used in cleaning trace analysis labware. This stability significantly reduces the risk of cross-contamination.

EXCELLENT LONG-TERM STABILITY

PFA containers often extend the stability of low (ppb) concentration standards. Such stability reduces the time and cost of renewing trace analysis standard solutions.

HIGHLY TRANSLUCENT

Translucency is important for making accurate measurements using volumetric labware.

SIMPLIFIED CLEANING

Conventional labware for trace analysis requires time-consuming and expensive cleaning. The hydrophobic and anti- adhesive properties of the exceptionally smooth-surfaced PFA labware simplify the cleaning process, making it ideal for trace analysis.
