Coating powder
NEOFLONTM PFA coating powder
NEOFLON PFA coating powder is fine particles of copolymer of tetrafluoroethylene and
perfluoroalkylvinylether.
Since NEOFLON PFA has lower melt viscosity than POLYFLON PTFE, it can make a
pinhole-free coating film. It is suitable for anti-corrosion linings.
This film shows the same excellent properties of POLYFLON PTFE film, such as chemical
resistance, heat resistance, non-stick property, low friction and outstanding electric property.
1. Characteristics
1-1 Workability
(1) It can make thick film.
When an appropriate processing condition is selected, thick film can be obtained with
NEOFLON PFA coating powder. The advantages are reduced processing time, and a
superior capability for use in heavy corrosion resistance application.

(2) It has a wide range of sintering conditions.
It can be sintered within the range of 340~380 C.
(3) Various methods are applicable.
General equipment for powder coating can be applied.
1-2 Characteristics of film
(1) Excellent resistance to stress cracking.
(2) Excellent chemical resistance.
(3) Excellent heat resistance.
(4) Excellent non-stick property.
(5) Excellent electric property, weather resistance, and incombustibility.

5. Handling instructions
(1) Please wear glasses, gloves, and masks while handling agents.
(2) During sintering powders, or at sites places where the resin temperature is high (PTFE,
PFA=260 C, FEP=205 C, ETFE=150 C), please ensure good ventilation as well as
installing local ventilation equipment. In case any person inhales fumes generated during
sintering, this may result in polymer fume fever, which has symptoms similar to a cold.
Please control to ensure the temperature of the resin does not exceed a high level (PTFE,
PFA=380 C, FEP=360 C, ETFE=310 C) during sintering. If the temperature rises
excessively, thermal cracking will increase, which may generate hydrogen fluoride.
(3) Please avoid smoking at the work site as you may inhale hazardous gases if smoking a
cigarette coated in NEOFLON coating powder. Wash your face and hands after processing
work to ensure any cigarette is not exposed to the powder coating.
(4) If you dispose of NEOFLON coating powder, avoid discarding into the sewage, and store in
a specific container for disposal. For this purpose, make consignment contact with an
industrial waste management company in order to consign the disposal.
