CYTOP™ amorphous fluoropolymers have the same excellent chemical, thermal, electrical and surface properties as conventional fluoropolymers like PTFEs, but also exhibit high optical transparency and good solubility in specific fluorinated solvents. CYTOP fluoropolymers are like transparent PTFEs.
The thermoplastic characteristics of CYTOP, coupled with its transparency, solubility, insulation properties, resistance to chemicals, and oils/water repellency, make it a popular choice for coating electronic materials. CYTOP exhibits low refractive index, low coefficient of optical dispersion and good lamination properties. CYTOP fluoropolymers are available on request in various solvents (110ºC – 180ºC) and at various concentrations.
The CYTOP™ trademark is registered in Japan.
