Construction

Style NA1500 PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) is a high molecular weight polymer and one of the most versatile plastics known to man. Style 1500 virgin PTFE sheet can handle virtually all chemicals in the 0-14 pH range with the exception of molten alkali metals and elemental fluorine. It is suitable for service at temperatures from the cryogenic range up to 500°F.

Application / Service

Style NA1500 This style is particularly recommended for applications in the food and beverage industry where high purity materials are required. It is also used where contamination or discoloration of flow media cannot be tolerated.

Meets the following Specifications:

ASTM D3308
ASTM D1457
