Compared to other polymer materials,
fluoropolymers have unique properties that give them superior resistance
to heat, chemicals, and weather while providing non-stick and low
friction characteristics. Fluoropolymers are used as indispensable
materials at plants in a wide range of fields such as semiconductors,
information technology, architecture, automotive, and chemicals for
their ability to improve operation efficiency and purity, ensure
maintenance free operation under harsh conditions, and protect plant

2. Application :
In comparison to other
polymers, fluoropolymer excel in heat, chemical and weather resistance.
Other than that, they have very unique characteristics such as non-stick
property and low friction. They are widely used in production equipment,
piping and tanks to improve efficiency and purity, protect equipment and
ensure maintenance-free running under harsh conditions.
3.Safe Handing and Use:
Although Fluoroplastics present no hazard
under normal processing conditionsthese safe-handling points should be
HARMFUL IF INHALED.
The work area
should be adequately ventilated at all times because HF, COF2 may
begin to be produced at above the following temperatures (PTFE. PFA=260,
PFA=230, ETFE=180, PCTFE=150) and the volume may increases at
temperatures above these (PTFE. PFA=400, FEP=300, ETFE=260, PCTFE=200).
IF fluoroplastic is incinerated, the acidic gases must be removed by
alkaline scrubbing techniques.
Personnel should be
cautioned against inhaling the fumes liberated during processing and
provided with suitable protective equipment.
Do not smoke in the
work areas as harmful vapors and gases can be produced if
fluoropolymers become transferred onto tobacco.
dust and contact with eyes.
Wash hands and face
during processing should be treated by waste treatment specialists
and disposed of in accordance with federal, state and local waste
Read the "Material
Safety Data Sheet" before beginning processing operations.
