In recent years, the use of a proton exchange membrane (PEM), an ionomeric (ionic polymer) membrane such as Nafion (a sulfonated tetrafluoroethylene
polymer) or polybenzimidzole (PBI) that is designed to conduct protons while being impermeable to gases such as hydrogen and oxygen has been used to electrolyze water.
Dyneon HTE is a new terpolymer of hexafluoropropylene, tetrafluoroethylene
, and ethylene from Dyneon LLC, Oakdale, Minn.
Materials scientists have developed a simple procedure for making electronic devices such as circuit boards out of copper and (poly) tetrafluoroethylene
-- better known by its trade name, Teflon.
We treated a copolymer of tetrafluoroethylene
and ethylene (DuPont Tefzel) with an oxygen-sulfur hexafluoride plasma.
The construction scope of work includes supply, fabrication, and erection of structural steel, glass curtain walls, and ethylene tetrafluoroethylene
Aflas 600X from AGC Chemicals Americas is a tetrafluoroethylene
propylene (FEPM) material that is said to offer performance and processing advantages over BRE, FKMs and other Aflas grades, making it ideal for molded products like durable packers, bladders, gaskets and o-rings.
Fluon ETFE is a melt-processable copolymer of tetrafluoroethylene
and ethylene for a variety of applications, including wire and cable coatings; semiconductor and electronic components; valves, fittings and pump housings; and tubing and pipe.
Our perspective, on the polymer side, is that there are a lot of polymers used in medical device manufacturing, such as polylactic acid, ethylene tetrafluoroethylene
, and polytetrafluoroethylene that have low melting temperatures.
A copolymer between tetrafluoroethylene
and perfluoro-4-trifluoromethoxy-1,3-dioxole (AD60) and two perfluoropolyether containing ammonium phosphate (F10) or triethoxysilane (S10) functionalities have been tested.
It will be clad in Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene
(ETFE), a recyclable material developed for the space industry and used on the Eden Project.
Multinational fluorochemical producer, Ausimont USA, Thorofare, NJ, recently initiated plans to construct a new tetrafluoroethylene
(TFE) monomer facility and "Hyflon" MFA perfluoropolymer unit in the U.
The beams will support a series of lightweight, largely transparent ethylene tetrafluoroethylene
(ETFE) pillows that will be stretched between the steelwork and held in tension.
