NEOFLON PFA AP-230 is a fluororesin that is excellent in melt flowability.
It is suitable for extrusion molding.
AP-230 is a copolymer of tetrafluoroethylene and perfluoroalkyl vinyl ether.
Good melt flowability while maintaining excellent properties of PTFE. It can be melt-molded as a thermoplastic resin by extrusion molding, transfer molding, compression molding and the like.
It has been used for tubes, pipes, sheets, lining applications.
It is widely used as a thick plate material by compression molding.
Excellent chemical resistance which is not affected by most of the chemicals.
It retains flexibility without losing toughness under the environment from cryogenic to high temperature.
Excellent heat resistance. Continuous use temperature is 260°C.
Low dielectric constant and dielectric loss tangent in a wide range of temperature and frequency.
It shows high electrical resistance and dielectric strength.
Nonflammable like POLYFLON PTFE and NEOFLON FEP.
Excellent weather resistance. No properties change even when exposed outside for a long time.
Non-stickiness. It shows excellent releasability and water repellency / oil repellency.
