Enhanced Material Science – Resins and Compounds
Fluon+ is a new range of functional fluoropolymers based on a unique technology developed by AGC Chemicals.
These grades are modified reactive materials, ideal for composite constructions, polymer blends, high-performance 5G coatings, multi-layer tubes, and other applications where adhesion or blending of fluoropolymers can improve chemical, physical, thermal and electrical performance.
Fluon+ combines AGC‘s technological leadership in functional fluoropolymers with its expertise in high performance polymers, compounds and composites technology. Under the Fluon+ brand, AGC proposes fluoropolymer products which deliver enhanced values and performance, going beyond the performance threshold of our existing Fluon® fluoropolymer products.
The outstanding properties include:
- Flame Retardance
- Optical Properties
- Heat Resistance
- Water and Oil Repellency
- Electrical Properties
- Chemical Resistance
The Fluon+ Range
Fluon+ Melt Processable Compounds enhance properties and add pigment to a wide range of fluoropolymer resins including ECTFE, ETFE, FEP, MFA, PFA and PVDF.
Fluon+ ADHESIVE is a fluorinated adhesive resin made with Fluon® ETFE and PFA and is used in applications which require strong adhesion to other plastics or metals.
Fluon+ Composites are adhesive fluoropolymers which may be combined/laminated with CFRP (Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastics) / CFRTP (Carbon Fibre Reinforced Thermo Plastics) for a “plus alpha” performance.
Fluon+ Modifiers incorporate functionalised fluoropolymers into existing polymer matrices and composites.
Fluon+ mPLASTICS is a new range of compounds modified with fluoropolymer material science that was developed based on AGC’s compounding technology. This group of fluorinated compounding solutions can be tailored to achieve specific performance requirements.
Fluon+ Filled PTFE Compounds are manufactured by our sister company AGC Chemicals Americas. They are not part of the European standard offering but can be offered upon request.
