Chemours™ Teflon™ dispersions provide products with chemical inertness, temperature stability, excellent dielectric properties, weather resistance and non-stick characteristics and can be processed using conventional dip or flow techniques to either coat or impregnate high temperature fabrics or fibres. Teflon™ dispersions can be built up gradually during processing to produce a smooth, crack-free coating. Primarily PTFE dispersions, however PFA, FEP and micropowder grades are also available.
Teflon™ FEP resins are often used within the manufacturing of cables, tubing and piping which require excellent chemical and stress resistance, along with many other characteristics offered by PTFE products. They have a melt viscosity low enough to be processed by extrusion (conventional and melt) and by compression,transfer and injection or blow molding processes.
Teflon™ Fluoroplastic foaming resins are innovative technology which reduces the dielectric constant of insulating cable, whilst still providing fast data transmission with minimal distortion, and allows manufacturers to produce lighter and smaller wires. Successful use of Teflon™ FFR products ensures good adhesion of insulation to the copper wire, which in turn leads to improved return loss whilst also providing additional characteristics often associated with fluoropolymer products.
Teflon™ PFA is a perfluoroalkoxy copolymer resin which provides superior creep resistance at high temperatures, very good flame resistance and excellent low-temperature toughness. Products manufactured with Teflon™ PFA resins provide improved resistance characteristics often associated with fluoropolymers. General purpose resins have applications within tubing extrusion, however high purity grades are available for applications which require high-purity processes such as those within the pharmaceutical industries.
Products made with Chemours™ Teflon™ fluoropolymer resins have exceptional resistance to high temperatures, chemical reaction, corrosion and stress-cracking. The mechanical toughness, electrical, and low-friction properties of Teflon™ make it the preferred plastic for many applications and processing techniques.
Tefzel™ ETFE products contain a range of ethylene and tetrafluoroethylene copolymers (modified and unmodified) which have applications in products where general thermoplastics are lacking in mechanical properties. Products processed with Tefzel™ ETFE resins provide improved resistance characteristics often associated with fluoropolymers, along with improved mechanical properties such as abrasion resistance and impact strength.
Zonyl™ MP fluoroadditives are white, free-flowing PTFE powders designed for use as additives in other materials or systems. They differ from Teflon™ PTFE fine powders because of the very small particle size, typically in the range of 2 to 20 µm, low molecular weight and the way they are handled and processed. Zonyl™ MP fluoroadditives can provide non-stick properties, improved lubricity, better wear resistance and reinforcing properties.
