Virgin Molding – F4 PN
Fluoroplast-4 grade PN (F-4PN) is fully fluorinated resin which has an excellent chemical stability, electrical and mechanical properties. The material is a granular powder product designed for usage from small to medium billet compression molding, which is well suited to thin skived film applications requiring excellent physical and electrical properties. Halopolymer PTFE granular powders PN is product of suspension polymerization of TFE subjected to grinding.
General purpose: pipes, tubes, spacers, O-rings, laboratory and chemical equipment. Suitable for skiving sheets and films.
30 kg cardbox with 2 x 15 kg polyethylene inserts.
28 Kg cardbox with 2 x 14 kg polyethylene inserts.

1) The value of the parameters is per GOST, because manufactured products are analyzed according to GOST (Russian State Standard). The sample preparation procedure has a difference with the ASTM. The standard of the company is GOST 10007-80 (Specific molding pressure is 29.4 MPa with dwell time of 1 minute, temperature of heat treatment of plates for the samples is 380-390 °C, and time of heat treatment is 13 hours).
