Transitioning from PTFE to PFA

From PTFE to PFA – the business case I Savillex blog

For low volume part production runs or prototyping, CNC-machining a custom part (or product) from polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) or tetrafluoroethylene (TFE) is typically the most convenient, cost-effective option.

But what you might not know is that switching to injection-molded PFA can deliver several major, long-term benefits to your production process.

First, let’s look at the materials themselves. Out of all the fluoropolymers, PTFE is known for being highly flexible, chemical resistant and thermally stable. However, unlike PFA, PTFE can’t be injection molded.

Benefits of fluoropolymers for bioprocessing

What are fluoropolymers and how are they used? We get quite a few questions about fluoropolymer plastics and how they’re used in bioprocessing. Where are they already being used? Which material is suited to what applications and what are the benefits of each? We’re going to dig a little deeper

Sights, sounds and learnings from BioProcess International

Fresh off this year’s BioProcess International show in Boston, we have a few quick thoughts on what we saw and learned. BioProcess International (BPI) was a great event for professional networking – especially on the tradeshow floor. Most attendees had active projects on the go and were looking for ready-to-use

Mark your calendars: Savillex is attending the BioProcess International Conference from September 9 – 12, and we’re hoping you will stop by booth 313 for a visit. But first – a few quick facts about the BioProcess International Conference itself: • Held annually at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Centre
