FLEMION® is a fluorinated ion exchange membrane used to produce caustic soda/caustic potash in electrolysis plants. FLEMION membranes achieve substantial energy savings because they require less electrical current to decompose the purified brine. In addition to saving energy, FLEMION membranes minimize the influence of brine impurities and enable manufacturers to maintain 97-98% electrical current efficiency.
FLEMION is used in the electrolyzers at electrolysis plants that decompose brine. It plays a key part in manufacturing caustic soda (sodium hydroxide)/caustic potash (potassium hydroxide), chlorine, and hydrogen-basic chemical products. These chemicals are key ingredients of many products used in our daily lives.
For more than 40 years, AGC has worked to reduce the electric resistance of fluorinated ion exchange membranes. Our flagship product F-8080 is a fluorinated cation exchange membrane that is preferred by many customers because it offers extremely low resistance.
