4 Reasons to Beat the Elements with a Fluoropolymer Coating

When city officials decided to renovate the dated 1950s-era Las Vegas Convention Center, they knew it would be a massive project inside and out because bringing the historic structure into the modern age would not be easy. Once the convention center was completed, it needed to stand the test of time…literally. A job for fluoropolymer […]

How to Produce Superior Sealed Parts with Fluoroelastomers Bonded to Metal

Many industrial equipment parts and components use rubber seals to protect them from harmful chemicals, fluids and gases. Shaft seals, cylinder head gaskets, oil seals and packers all require rubber seals when used in harsh environments and applications such as the automotive, processing and oil & gas industries. These parts and components rely on rubber-to-metal […]

Vehicle Makers Turn to Fluoropolymers to Protect Auto Parts from Harsh Fuels

Using ethanol, biodiesel and other biofuels are becoming commonplace as we seek alternatives to nonrenewable oil resources and try to reduce harmful emissions. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, roughly 97% of gasoline in the U.S. contains some ethanol. The problem is that these biofuels and additives are extremely harsh on vehicle fuel systems […]

AFLAS® 600X fluoroelastomers for offshore technology

Introducing AFLAS 600X at the Offshore Technology Conference

Once again we were excited to be a part of the Offshore Technology Conference. This event attracts oil and gas industry professionals from over 100 countries to share ideas about meeting global energy demands. At OTC we introduced AFLAS® 600X fluoroelastomers, which we developed especially for molded products like durable packers, bladders, gaskets and O-rings. […]

Architectural Designs using ETFE film are Friendlier to the Environment

Architects recognize that ETFE film is a high-performance building material for membrane structures, facades and roofs. This material makes it possible to create moveable, semi-transparent shell structures that are dramatic, colorful and brilliantly illuminated from within. That’s why it’s been used in some of the world’s most creative architectural designs. Moreover, ETFE offers environmental advantages. […]

The Evolution of Fluoropolymer Coatings for Buildings and Structures

It’s always been a major challenge to protect buildings and public infrastructure from nature’s elements. Take bridges, for example. According to the 2017 Infrastructure Report Card, 9.1% of the U.S.’s 614,387 bridges are “structurally deficient.” This is most likely because almost 40% of them are 50 years or older. AGC formulators continually strive to develop resins for […]

Tips for Selecting Lubricant PTFE Powders

If you’ve been working with or purchasing PTFE powders for a while now, then you already know that these fine resins produce products that are resistant to water, heat, friction and abrasion. In fact, you can compound PTFE powders with rubbers and plastics to add lubrication properties. Compounders can also disperse them into liquids for fortification and […]
