Chemistry Compatibility - 2

uncompromising chemistry design for diaphragm pumps One of the most distinguishing properties of PTFE is its outstanding chemical resistance, except for some extreme conditions such as molten alkali metals or elemental fluorine. Basically PTFE is not soluble in any organic solvents. Even aggressive acids such as aqua regia cannot attack PTFE. The reason for this is a particularly strong bond between the carbon and the fluorine atoms and the shielding of carbon atoms by the surrounding fluorine atoms. Fluoropolymers and perfluoro elastomers are materials containing fluorine atoms in their...
