In response to the global PCTFE resin shortfall, we, at AFT Fluorotec, have recommended PAEK AF825 as a superior alternative for low-temperature PAEK valves. This remarkable material offers enhanced strength, thermal conductivity, dimensional stability, and reduced friction coefficient compared to PCTFE. With its exceptional chemical resistance and durability inherited from PEEK, PAEK AF825 proves to be a game-changer for cryogenic applications. As the shortage persists, our innovative solution ensures reliable and high-performance valve materials.
