Expanded Shipping Options

Posted on January 02, 2016 by Accounts Fluorotherm

We're working hard to improve how shipping is calculated at Fluorostore. With that in mind, we've now lowered our flat rate to $20 for domestic ground orders. 

However, we realized that many customers have their own accounts with FedEx and UPS. We've always been able to accept customers' shipping accounts, and now we've decided to formalize this.

If you have your own shipping account you'd like to use, follow the prompts during checkout and we'll refund the amount we charge via Fluorostore and instead charge your account. Please note that at this time, we can only accept UPS and FedEx accounts.

Boost Heat Transfer with FEP and PFA Heat-Conductive Tubing

Posted on February 04, 2014 by Sachin Shukla

Our partners at Fluorotherm have developed a new fluoropolymer product out of FEP and PFA resins that achieves high heat transfer efficiency while retaining the chemical inertness and resistance of fluoropolymers.

Created from FEP and PFA resins, it retains the unique chemical inertness of fluoropolymers to most chemicals. It also continues to demonstrate longevity under aggressive chemical environments, as well as extreme temperatures. Yet, many of the other standard features have been improved for the product’s release. Primarily, the amount of thermal conductivity is 2.7 times higher than that of natural fluoropolymers, a significant increase compared to recently developed tubing products. The new product also maintains an excellent anti-stat property that resists dust and other particulate contaminants, which will result in a cleaner environment for engineers and scientists in any lab or facility.

Fluoropolymer Heat-Conductive Tubing comes in both fractional and metric sizes and can be purchased right here on Fluorostore.

Seven Reasons to Shop at Fluorostore

Posted on January 21, 2014 by Sachin Shukla

With a few different stores selling fluoropolymers online, it's sometimes difficult to understand why one is better than another. We built Fluorostore around a few valuable components that we think sets us apart. Here's what keeps our customers coming back:

  1. Focus on Fluoropolymers - With 40+ years of technical expertise and fluoropolymers as our only product line, we have a focus on striving to be the best place to purchase high quality tubing and custom products.
  2. Widest Online Inventory - Fluorostore has over 300 sizes in stock for PTFE, FEP, PFA, and other common fluoropolymers in both metric and fractional dimensions, many of which are impossible to find elsewhere.
  3. Popular Bundled Lengths - Now, purchase tubing in widely popular bundles starting from 5 feet.
  4. Competitive Pricing - Our partnership with Fluorotherm Polymers allows us to offer the most competitive pricing online, as our products come straight from their manufacturing facility in the USA. 
  5. Free Domestic Ground Shipping - No longer worry about shipping rates. When you use ground shipping for domestic orders, pay nothing for shipping!
  6. New and Custom Products - Our partnership with Fluorotherm also allows us to be the first place to purchase brand new and custom fluoropolymer products like Conductive Tubing and PCTFE Structural Rods.
  7. Intuitive, Convenient Shopping Experience - Shopping online is all about convenience, that's why we continuously strive to improve our interface and have redesigned Fluorostore three times since launching. 

We hope you agree with many of the points above and enjoy shopping on Fluorostore. We'd love to hear from you if you've got suggestions or questions. Feel free to reach out to us at support@fluorostore.com

 

A Brand New Fluorostore!

Posted on January 07, 2014 by Sachin Shukla

When we first launched Fluorostore three years ago, we were hoping to provide a much needed service to as many customers as possible - custom length tubing for the most common fluoropolymers (PTFE, FEP, PFA, etc). It couldn't be found easily on the internet at the time or by calling and emailing manufacturers. We saw that as an opportunity to step in and provide a solution. 

Since then, our shop has grown to provide not only custom length fluoropolymer tubing, but a variety of proprietary products as well for many small and medium sized manufacturing companies. Along the way, we've been keen on getting as much feedback as possible. 

The feedback from this past year has been predominantly focused on making the site easier to use - finding products, placing orders, contacting support. That's why we're excited to start 2014 off with a brand new shop. We've simplified the homepage and product pages, and made many of the menus smarter. We've also cleaned up our material information page to provide a clear comparison of technical characteristics on PTFE, FEP, PFA, and other fluoropolymers we sell. 

This is just the beginning for us, so stay tuned for other important and exciting changes coming up!
