Fluoropolymer components themselves have excellent "durability". Also, fluoropolymer coating agents can provide standard resin components with "weatherability".
Coatings that use fluoropolymers can also provide weatherability for commodity resin components.
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.

Fluon® ETFE is used in special resin components which require properties such as heat resistance and chemical resistance.
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® PTFE is used in special resin components which require properties such as heat resistance and chemical resistance.
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 is used in special resin components which require properties such as heat resistance and chemical resistance.
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.
