What is PFA?


PFA – Perfluoroalkoxy
This fluoroplastic material has good chemical resistance, a wide application temperature range and very good resistance to aging and weathering. In addition, it shows a low frictional resistance and a good electrical insulation with particularly high requirements such as for example:

– high demands on chemical and solvent resistance
– high degree of resistance
– excellent temperature resistance and deep temperature flexibility
– good electrical insulation properties with low almost frequency-independent dielectric properties
– operating temperature from approx. -90°C up to +250°C (short-term +260°C)

Examples of applications for PFA cables:
PFA: high frequency, broadband and telecommunication technologies, coaxial and microwave technologies. High data rate along with precise information transfer, chemical industry, kiln construction, brickworks, heating devices, …
