Fluon+ Melt Processable Compounds are reinforced with proprietary conductive, strengthening and reinforcing fillers and are ideal for a wide variety of applications including wire and cable coatings; semiconductor and electronic components; valves, fittings and pump housings; and tubing and pipe. AGC uses FEP, ETFE, ECA, PFA, PVDF, MFA and ECTFE resins to produce Fluon+ melt processable compounds, which can be processed using extrusion, injection and compression molding techniques.
Fluon+ Filled PTFE Compounds provide enhanced deformation and creep resistance, thermal conductivity and wear performance over traditional PTFE resins. These engineered fluoropolymer compounds play an important role in oil and gas exploration and recovery because they improve the performance properties of parts and components in severe operating conditions. Fluon+ filled PTFE compounds impart characteristics that are vital for components such as bearings, seals and gaskets used in applications where they need to withstand ongoing heat, pressure and dynamic environments.
Fluon+ Adhesive Grades are made with Fluon ETFE or PFA and are used in applications requiring strong adhesion to polyamide polymers like nylon 12 for applications such as electronics materials, coatings, fuel hoses, multilayer films and linings. They exhibit superior chemical and reliable permeation resistance to many fluids and gases, especially in transportation and industrial applications.
Fluon+ Modifiers are used for engineered plastics and continuous fiber-reinforced composites. Our fluorinated modifiers are added to plastics, metal and carbon fibers to enhance their performance characteristics.
Fluon+ Flexible Compounds are made from engineered plastics and proprietary fluoroelastomers to provide added flexibility. They are ideal for wire and cable used in motor vehicles, aerospace and appliances as well as for film and sheet, tubing and pipe insulation, and electronic components.
