Search Result: Chemical resistance

The strength of the "carbon-fluorine bonds" in fluoropolymer products keeps the impact of various chemicals and oils very low. For that reason, our products exhibit superior "chemical resistance" and "oil resistance".

LUMIFLON®

Can be coated at room temperature, and forms a film layer that is strong against acids and alkalis. 

LUMIFLON® is the world first solvent-soluble fluoropolymer developed by AGC in 1982. LUMIFLON® is used as an ingredient for various types of paints and coatings (including corrosion protection and architectural application), the weatherability of fluoropolymer protects substrates and maintains an attractive appearance for a long time.

AFLAS®

AFLAS® has outstanding resistance to highly-active chemical substances such as acidic and alkaline substances. It is also able to maintain its exceptional quality even in conditions where such highly-active chemical substances have high concentrations or temperatures. Additionally, it shows high resistance to methanol and other polar solvents as well.

AFLAS® is unique fluoroelastomer and has superior amine/base resistance and electrical insulation compared to conventional fluoroelastomers. AFLAS® is highly suitable for critical applications where reliability is required.

Fluon® ETFE

It has excellent resistance to almost all chemical agents and solvents.

Fluon®ETFE is a tough fluoropolymer that has chemical resistance and electrical properties comparable to typical fluoropolymers, such as PTFE, PFA and FEP but performs better than ECTFE or PVdF because of its improved mechanical strength and moldability.

Fluon® LM-ETFE

It has excellent resistance to almost all chemical agents and solvents.

Fluon®LM-ETFE is a fluororesin which combines the excellent heat resistant and mechanical properties of ETFE resin and a low melting point

Fluon® LM-ETFE AH Series

It has excellent resistance to almost all chemical agents and solvents.

AH Series
Fluon® LM-ETFE AH series products are fluoro resins with adhesive properties, making it possible to adhere to other materials by melting.
It can be applied directlywithout an adhesive agent or surface treatment as required by previous systems.
Excellent adhesiveness of a two-layer system is efficiently achieved in only one step.

Fluon® PTFE

Inert to almost all chemical agents, and virtually not corroded by solvents.

PTFE accounts for 60-70% of the total demand for fluoropolymers. Although discovered over 60 years ago, applications are still being explored in new fields due to its numerous desired properties such as inertness, lubricity and heat resistance.

Fluon® PFA

PFA has high chemical stability and is not affected by most chemicals. PFA is ideal for molding materials of semiconductors that are constantly exposed to highly active chemicals.

Fluon® PFA is a copolymer of tetrafluoroethylene (C2F4) and perfluoroalkoxyethylene. PFA retains inherent characteristics and similar properties to PTFE but can be processed using thermoplastic techniques, such as injection molding, extrusion, and blow molding.

Fluon® ETFE Film

It is inactive against most chemicals like strong acid or strong alkaline chemicals. It is well suited to applications in contact with chemicals.

Fluon® ETFE Film is a high-performance fluoropolymer film manufactured by AGC from our raw material. Due to its excellent properties of heat resistance, chemical resistance, optical transparency, and non-adhesiveness, it has a wide variety of applications from electronics, aircrafts and solar cells to kitchen products and wallpaper.

CYTOP®

Because CYTOP® has properties that make it resistant to various types of acids, alkali and organic solvents, it helps to protect substrates from chemicals by applying the product.

Because CYTOP® has an amorphous structure, it can achieve extremely high transparency, and since it dissolves in an exclusive fluorine-based solvent, thin film coating is possible. Furthermore, it is a fluoropolymer with the characteristics including “transparency”, “low refractivity”, “electrical insulation”, “water and oil repellency”, and “chemical resistance”.

FORBLUE™ S series

All materials that make up the membrane (including the reinforcing fabric) are made from fluorinated resins.

New addition to this family is FORBLUETM S series - fluorinated sulfonic acid ion exchange membranes for a wide variety of electrolysis and electro dialysis processes.
