Fluon+™ Melt Processable Compounds

Enhance properties and add pigment to a wide range of fluoropolymer resins including ECTFE, ETFE, FEP, PFA and PVDF.

Fluon+ Melt Processable Compounds are based on copolymer resins FEP, ETFE, PFA, PVDF and ECTFE.

Fluon+™ Melt Processable Compounds are based on copolymer resins FEP, ETFE, PFA, PVDF and ECTFE. These fluoropolymer compounds extend the properties of chemical resistance, toughness and lubricity. The standard products are free of cadmium, hexavalent chromium and lead. All Fluon melt processable compound products are manufactured to precise specifications.

Types of Fluon+™ melt processable fluoropolymer compounds:

  • Cross-linkable compounds
  • Conductive/anti-static compounds
  • Reinforced compounds
  • Lubricated compounds
  • Flexible AR compounds
  • Adhesive compounds
  • Color concentrates
  • Foam concentrates
  • Cross-linkable compounds: Increase mechanical properties such as scrape abrasion, cut-through resistance and tensile strength, especially at elevated temperatures.
  • Flexible AR compounds: Modified ETFE and a proprietary fluoroelastomer maintain many desirable properties of ETFE in a more flexible form. Heat resistance can be enhanced by radiation curing and can be cross-linked without the presence of curing agents or co-agents.
  • Conductive/anti-static compounds: Control heat and static electricity. Wire coated with a conductive fluoropolymer may be used for freeze protection and process temperature control.
  • Adhesive-grade compounds: Are modified ETFE used in applications requiring strong adhesion to polyamide polymers, especially nylon 12. These compounds also exhibit high permeation resistance to many fluids and gases, especially automotive fuels.
  • Color concentrates: Superb surface finish, color consistency and dispersion even at high-speed extrusion rates.
    Reinforced compounds: Incorporate glass and mineral fillers for enhanced dimensional stability, abrasion resistance, shrinkage resistance and thermal conductivity characteristics.
  • Foam concentrates: Designed for gas injection foaming used for manufacture of LAN and coaxial cables. The properties of a foamed insulation help minimize signal loss, enhance high-speed data transmission, and save weight and material.
  • Lubricated compounds: Contain lubricious fillers such as PTFE and FEP. Used on car or truck brake “push-pull” cables where a low-friction, abrasion-resistant liner surface is needed.
