Fluorine resin can be used to various applications like non-stick frying pan, semiconductor, OA equipment, automobiles and general industrial machinery, has been active in a wide range of fields.
The following lists show the typical characteristics and types of fluorine resin.
Characteristics of fluoro resin
|Heat resistance||UL temperature 260℃(PFA・PTFE),can be used in a variety of environments.|
|Chemical resistance||Inert to most chemicals including strong acid/ alkali of high temperature and high concentration, and also insoluble in solvent.|
|Electirc insulation||The dielectric constant is lowest among plastics.|
|Separability||Because the excellent non-adhesive characteristic, any sticky substances is difficult to adhere. Even adhered, it is easy to peel off.|
|Sliding property||It has excellent slipperiness.|
|Water resistance||It has high surface tension, and strong waterproofness.|
|Weather resistance||It's possible to withstand the outdoor exposure by sunlight in a long period of time.|
|Purity||There is almost no elution of impurities.|
Types of fluorine resin
|PFA||Tetrafluoroethylene-perfluoroalkyl vinyl ether copolymer (Soluble Teflon)|
|ETFE||Ethylene - tetrafluoroethylene copolymer|
|ECTFE||Ethylene - chlorotrifluoroethylene copolymer|
