Electron Microscope Sciences also has a granular formulation of PFA
that is not dusty, cat # 12910 , 1kg, --that is what we use ---for
those who may need "vast quantities" of 4% PFA as someone recently
mentioned. We found it by accident, as there are other vendors that
claim their PFA to be granular and yet it is just as dusty as all the
others, so I didn't put much stock in their description... but this
time, they were right.
