« You are in good hands »

    Founded in 1963, SAFI has unrivalled experience in handling corrosive and abrasive chemicals with thermoplastic materials in many applications.

  • Real solution for corrosive fluids

    Built to last...

    SAFI offers valves that are reliable and trouble free over a long time.

    Our selection of polymer materials and valve design enable our valves to last many years without maintenance.

  • Why SAFI thermoplastic valves ?
    “Fit and forget”

    At SAFI we understand the importance of product reliability and believe that thermoplastic valves are a great solution to corrosion:
    . Inert to corrosion of the most aggressive chemicals
    . Less expensive that alloy metals and lined valves
    . Light weight
    . Robust

    Quality equipment from Europe Product conformity to the most stringent standards.

Replacement of Metal Valves by Thermoplastic Valves

  • Metal valves are replaced by plastic valves when pressure and temperature are right;
  • Corrosion of metal through uniform and attack and other forms of corrosion/abrasion;
  • Some metals, like hastelloy, do not corrode easily but cost 10 times more than thermoplastics!

The advantages of THERMOPLASTIC valves - Resist the worst corrosion!

Material Advantages



User Advantages

PTFE Lined metal valves X 100 times less resistant to abrasion than PVDF

Reduces operational costs

Hastelloy valves X 10 times more expensive than PPH valves

Improve your budget

Metal valves are at least 5 times heavier than thermoplastic valves for the same DN
Reduces support and logistic costs.
Critical in some applications

RESULT: highly reliable & secure product

  • High chemical and abrasive resistance
  • Long lasting, 40+ years
  • UV resistant
  • Extremely mechanicaly resistant

Replacement of rubber lined metal valves by thermoplastic valves

  • Rubber lined metal valves are replaced by plastic valves
  • Rubber gets eroded
  • No external corrosion protection

Replacement of diaphragm valves by ball valves

  • Diaphragm valves (regulation valves) are often used for on/off applications and are replaced by ball valves which close faster and last longer.
  • Diaphragm valves need regular maintenance
  • Diaphragms break (PTFE)
