fluoroplastics

[¦flu̇r·ō¦plas·tiks]
(materials)
A family of plastics based on fluorine replacement of hydrogen atoms in hydrocarbon molecules; includes polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), polychlorotrifluoroethylene (PCTFE), polyvinylidene fluoride, and fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP). Also known as fluoropolymers.

James ran the division for a while until leaving to start his own business, JR Fluoroplastics, in 1980.
Among the topics are fluorinated peroxides as initiators of fluorinated polymers, anionic polymerization fluorinated vinyl monomers, synthesizing fluoro-functional conjugated polymers by electrochemical methods, structure-property relations in semi-fluorinated polymethacrylates, and the melt viscosity properties of fluoroplastics: correlations to molecular structure and tailoring principles.
In addition, it will demonstrated how, used as a biding agent, 3M Dyneon Fluoroplastics THV extends the lifetime of batteries, which is of particular relevance to the automotive industry, amongst others, as the high performance plastic offers very good barrier properties and withstands very high temperatures.
