 Naflon® PFA-HG Tubing
 Check to see which best fit your needs. If you have any questions, please call for assistance at 1-800-790-7837 or e-mail sales@netmotion.com

Features:

  • Improved surface flatness reduces entrapment of particles or liquids
  • Enhanced stress crack resistance (i.e. fuming sulfuric acid)
  • Lower liquid or gas permeation
  • Reduced cleaning time
  • Improved dielectric strength
  • Minimal extractable fluorine ion
  • Improved clarity

Naflon® PFA-HG semiconductor high-grade tubing is made from the Mitsui Dupont 451HP-J with lower level fluorine ion and reduction of spherical size of the crystallization structure. The surface of the wall is therefore flatter and smoother. Naflon® PFA-HG semiconductor high-grade tubing is suitable for high purity applications.

In addition to the normal characteristics of PFA tubing, Naflon® PFA-HG tubing has the following characteristics:

  • Smoother intersurface bore (Rt=0.2µm)
  • Reduction of residual particles and liquid
  • Reduction of cleaning time
  • Reduction in elution of liquid
  • Improvement in transparency of tube wall
  • Improvement in electrical insulation
  • Reduction in elution of fluoric ion
  • Improvement of crack tolerance under harsh environment
Naflon® PFA-HG Tubing Clarity Test
PFA-HG Tube allows clearer red line viewing due to its smoother surface area.

Naflon® PFA-HG Tubing Wall Smoothness Comparison

Naflon® PFA-HG (High Grade) tubing comparison of interior wall smoothness against normal 350 and 450 compounds.

3D picture of interior wall shows the rough bore of conventionally extruded PFA compounds.

This rough surface entraps contaminants and debris that make it time consuming and difficult to flush clean.

3D picture of interior wall shows the smooth bore of Nichia’s Naflon® PFA -HG tubing.

This smooth surface reduces contaminants and debris from being trapped allowing for faster flushing of chemicals from the tubing and its wall.
