What is a fluoropolymer?
Fluoropolymers are a distinct subset of fluorinated polymers. They are polymers with fluorine atoms directly attached to their carbon-only backbone. With their unique physico-chemical properties, these specialty plastics are virtually chemically inert, non-wetting, non-stick, and highly resistant to temperature, fire and weather. Irreplaceable in many applications, their unique properties cannot be guaranteed by other polymers.
Where are fluoropolymers used?
Fluoropolymers are unique chemical substances used across numerous technologies, industrial processes and everyday applications from the aviation industry to transportation, medical devices and energy production and technical apparel.
