Since 2000, Crist Group has been a go-to company for high-performance fluoroplastic welding and fabrication services. Whether you’re in the semiconductor, auto, health, or OEM industry and you need fluoroplastic pipe welding services, Crist is the team to call!


Fluoroplastic welding is similar to other forms of welding in that you use heat to join two or more components together. However, fluoroplastic welding joins compatible thermoplastics rather than joining pieces of metal together as with traditional welding.

Fluoroplastic welding is essential for several industries, primarily the health sciences, auto, and semiconductor industries. It’s the best way to create a strong bond between plastics to ensure lasting performance and durability. While not all plastics are compatible with fluoroplastic welding techniques, the following materials are.

  • Polyethylene PE
  • Polycarbonate PC
  • Polypropylene PP
  • PTFE
  • PFA
  • FEP
  • PTFM
  • PVDF
Reasons You Might Need Fluoroplastic Welding

Fluoroplastic welding is helpful in any industry where plastic components need to be seamlessly and flawlessly joined together. Some of the most common industries include the OEM, semiconductor, auto, and health industries, but fluoroplastic welding is also used in food packaging, building electronics, aerospace, and more. Essentially, anytime plastic components need to be fabricated, fluoroplastic welding is the way to do it.

Benefits of Fluoroplastic Welding 

An alternative to fluoroplastic welding is to use pipes, couplings, and fittings to join multiple plastic components together. In addition to fasteners and fittings, manufacturers can also use adhesive bonds in place of welding. However, when these options are compared, fluoroplastic welding has a number of advantages, including: 

  • Welding is very fast and efficient 
  • The bonds created with welding are extremely strong and durable and can last indefinitely 
  • You can join different types of plastics together, whereas fittings and couplers often can’t be used interchangeably 
  • Fluoroplastic welding creates lightweight welds and is a surprisingly affordable process 
  • Welding cuts down on the need for elbows and fittings that can restrict flow rate 
  • Certain situations will require custom shapes that only welding can offer
