ALTAFLO a Pexco Company
Sparta, New Jersey, USA
transport critical fluid with confidence

ltaflo, a Pexco Company, is an innovative producer of high performance fluoropolymer and fluoroplastic tubing, pipe and profiles. Since the company’s inception, Altaflo has maintained a consistent focus on the critical requirements of even the most demanding applications.

Their process begins by selecting the highest performance resin grades within each product category. Although there are many resin producers, and various grades offered in each group, Altaflo uses only high molecular weight resin products to ensure optimum performance. These resins provide the highest stress crack resistance, greatest chemical resistance and overall superior performance in their finished products.

Once resin selections have been made, Altaflo adheres to a strict series of process controls to establish maximum efficiency while producing tight tolerance products that meet or exceed industry specifications. Upon request, tighter tolerances or adherence to dimensions other than standard nominal may be provided. In keeping with their commitment to quality, Altaflo has pursued and earned ISO 9000:2015 Certification. They have furthered that commitment by having their tubing tested and certified to the NSF Certifications: 51, 61 and 372.

Altaflo has production capabilities for a wide range of polymer options. In addition to standard smooth-bore tubing, they can provide convoluted tubing in a variety of flexibilities, each designed for specific applications. Pipe and custom profiles are also available.

Altaflo is able to provide many additional quality services to their customers, including:

  • Same day shipments
  • Low minimum orders
  • Precision cutting services/custom packaging
  • Custom colors/resins/additives
  • Heat forming
  • Heat sealing
  • Laser marking

Altaflo’s products include:

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is the most flexible of the fluoropolymers. ALTAFLUOR 100 PTFE can withstand the highest temperature of any fluoropolymer (up to 500°F/260°C continuous / 550°F/288°C short-term) and can resist highly corrosive liquids and gases at even elevated temperatures. While ALTAFLUOR 100 products are available in continuous lengths from stock, overall lengths may be limited, especially in larger sizes, due to batch processing. For longer lengths, FEP or PFA may be a suitable alternative.
ALTAFLUOR® 200 High Performance FEP
Fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) is an economical choice for applications requiring chemical resistance combined with broad temperature resistance. FEP is an almost transparent material, making it ideal for fluid monitoring applications, UV light transmission and other visual applications. Unlike PTFE, ALTAFLUOR 200 FEP can be provided in almost any continuous length required. FEP may be heat formed or flared for use with flare fittings.
FEP Lined PE tubing is designed for use in environmental testing applications. The purity of the FEP liner combined with the abrasion resistance and lower cost of the outer PE makes this a cost-effective solution.
THV is a terpolymer consisting of tetrafluoroethylene, hexafluoropropylene and vinylidene fluoride. This tubing has a unique combination of properties, making it the preferred choice for many applications. ALTAFLUOR 350 THV has the flexibility of traditional PVC flex tubing combined with chemical resistance much closer to that of FEP. ALTAFLUOR 350 has a UV transmission rate better than any fluoropolymer. Additional benefits include excellent permeation resistance and outstanding bondability with other materials, which allows for multi-layer extrusions.
ALTAFLUOR® 400 High Performance PFA
Perfluoroalkoxy (PFA) is the product of choice for applications requiring extreme chemical resistance combined with high temperature and fluctuating temperatures. Like FEP, PFA is available in long continuous lengths provided on clean-room compatible reels. However, PFA can withstand exposure to much higher temperatures and more aggressive chemicals than FEP. PFA can be heat formed and flared for use with flare fittings.
ALTAFLUOR® 480 UHP High Performance PFA
High purity perfluoroalkoxy (UHP PFA) is the preferred product for critical industries which require extreme resistance to corrosive chemicals combined with lowest extractable requirements. These tubing products are provided in special packaging designed for use in clean-room applications. UHP PFA may be heat formed or flared for use with flare fittings. Customized semiconductor grade cleaning protocols are also available. Please contact Altaflo’s customer service department for details.
Polyvinylidene (PVDF) FLEX is an abrasion resistant fluoropolymer suitable for use in applications requiring moderate chemical resistance and temperature exposure. Although this material is not as flexible as FEP or PFA, it is still considered a “flexible” material. ALTAFLUOR 550 tubing may be heat formed or flared for use with flare fittings.
Polyvinylidene (PVDF) has greater abrasion resistance versus other PVDF / PVDF FLEX grades and is suitable for use in applications requiring moderate chemical resistance and temperature exposure where greater abrasion resistance is preferred. Tubing produced using this resin is less flexible than tubes produced with other KYNAR resin grades.
Additional resins available
Additional materials available on request include: THV, THVP, KYNAR PVDF, ETFE, ECTFE and EFEP.
