Flemion™

Flemion™ is a fluorinated ion exchange membrane for production of caustic soda/caustic potash that achieves substantial energy-savings.

Flemion™ Functions and Features

Energy savings by low electric resitance

AGC has continued its efforts to reduce electric resistance of ion exchange membranes over the last 40 years by appling innovative designs. Our current flagship product F-8080 is a fluorinated cation exchange membrane that offers extremely low resitance and is the preferred product by many customers.

High current efficiency

The use of carboxylic polymer helps ion exchange membranes in salt electrolysis achieve high electrical current efficiency. This fluorinated carboxylic polymer was invented by AGC. This polymer industrialized the chlor-alkali membrane process. Now Flemion™ demonstrates 97 to 98% electrical current efficiency continuously.

Stable performance by high impurity resistance

AGC minimizes the influence of impurities on membranes by investigating the mechanisms of impurities effects. As a result of this process, membranes can achieve stable long-term performance.

Flemion™ Usage

Flemion™ is used in electrolyzers at electrolysis plants in which brine is decomposed. It plays a key part in manufacturing caustic soda (sodium hydroxide)/caustic potash (potassium hydroxide), chlorine, and hydrogen-basic chemical products required in our daily lives. It is used by customers throughout the world.

Flemion™ Usage

It has been successfully used for the following purposes.

Ion-exchange membrane for caustic soda electrolysis

Ion-exchange membrane for caustic soda electrolysis

It is used in salt (NaCl) electrolysis, which produces caustic soda (sodium hydroxide), chlorine, and hydrogen.

Ion-exchange membrane for caustic potash electrolysis

Ion-exchange membrane for caustic potash electrolysis

It is used in potash (KCl) electrolysis, which produces caustic potash (potassium hydroxide), chlorine, and hydrogen.
