Fluoropolymers (FP) are fluorocarbon based polymers with multiple strong carbon–fluorine bonds. They are characterized by a high resistance to solvents, acids, and bases.
Fluoropolymers share the properties of fluorocarbons in that they are not as susceptible to the van der Waals force as hydrocarbons. This contributes to their non-stick and friction reducing properties. Also, they are stable due to the stable multiple carbon–fluorine bonds in a chemical compound.
We, at RCS, have a wide range of FP coatings ranging from PTFE, PFA, FEP, ETFE, etc., which, in general exhibit the characteristics of a fluoro-polymer, and in specific, have distinct properties of their own. We select the most suitable surface coating material according to our customer’s specific needs and requirements.
Properties of Fluoropolymers:
- Chemical inertness
- Excellent dielectric properties
- Non – flammability
- Resistance to weathering
- Practically no moisture absorption
