What is Fluoropolymer?

Write By: sukoptfe Published In: Fluoropolymer Hits: 1331

Fluoropolymer is usually olefinic polymer which consists of partially or fully fluorinated olefinic monomers such as vinylidene fluoride (CH2¼CF2) and tetrafluoroethylene (TFE) (CF2¼CF2). These polymers have been covered in great detail in a number of references. More specialty fluorinated polymers include per-fluoroethers, fluoroacrylates, and fluorosilicones which are used in significantly smaller volume than olefinic fluoropolymers.
