Hold Largest Share in Metal Coatings Market Providing excellent chemical and corrosion resistance, fluoropolymers
are finding large application across various industries.
coatings are finding large application in architectural coatings exhibiting low surface energies, high resistance to water, chemicals, oils, and UV radiation, especially in exterior application.
There is a growing global demand for high-quality fluoropolymers
and this price adjustment ensures its ability to continue to invest and provide a high level of product quality, service and innovation to meet its customers' needs today and in the future, concluded the company.
Proton exchange membranes (PEMs) for direct methanol fuel cells (DMFCs) is another application where sulfonated fluoropolymers
(e.g., Nafion[R]) are used since they have high proton conductivity and excellent thermal, mechanical, and barrier properties [8-14].
Superior properties of fluoropolymers
, leading to their increased utilisation in various applications, are expected to drive revenue growth of the global fluoropolymer
3M subsidiary, Dyneon, is celebrating 20 years of providing fluoropolymers
for industries ranging from space to sports.
However, it is tricky to compound fluoropolymers
with glass, because the glass does not disperse easily.
These properties make fluoropolymers
attractive as highly durable protective coatings in many different architectural coating formulations, particularly those intended for exterior applications due to the need for excellent weatherability.
US demand for fluoropolymers
is forecast to increase 5.3% per year to $2.3 billion in 2019.

," Christophe Serbutoviez, Mohamed Benwadih, and Jean-Marie Verilhac (Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique, Paris, France).
American Kuhne has developed a 16-mm micro extruder designed to process fluoropolymers
for miniature medical devices such as fine wire jacketing for neuromodulation, microdialysis tubing, and neonatal intravenous (IV) catheter tubing.
