AGC engineers and technical sales team will be available to discuss applications for their wide range of fluoropolymer-based products at booth S-19054 in the Hot Technologies Pavilion.
AGC’s technical solutions team will present a broad array of products featuring AFLAS fluoroelastomers and Fluon fluoropolymers. Representatives from AGC’s FluoroCompounds Group, which focuses on the development, production and marketing of fluoropolymer compounds, will feature high performance custom compounding solutions.
Featured products will include:
• Fluon Filled PTFE Compounds, which provide enhanced deformation and creep resistance, thermal conductivity and wear performance. They are used for applications such as seals, gaskets and other critical parts where mechanical strength, chemical resistance and lubricity are essential.
• Fluon Melt Processable Compounds, based on copolymer resins FEP, ETFE, PFA, PVDF, MFA or ECTFE, are important materials for parts and components used in automotive, industrial, aerospace, transit and appliance applications because they impart physical toughness and high resistance to heat and chemicals. AGC FluoroCompounds Group offers eight different types of melt processable compounds.
• Fluon PTFE and PTFE Micropowders. They are inert to most chemicals, heat and weather resistant, and have excellent insulation and lubricious properties. PTFE resins are typically used for stock shapes, wire insulation, coatings and more. PTFE Micropowders applications include additives to oils, greases, paints and coatings, and as thermoplastic compounding agents.
• Fluon ETFE and Low Melt ETFE resins are highly desirable materials because of their superior resistance to heat and chemical attack. They also hold up in extreme weather conditions and last for years with negligible deterioration effects. Fluon PFA is similar to PTFE, but can be processed using techniques such as injection or blow molding.
• AFLAS fluoroelastomers can be used in demanding applications found in the oil/gas, chemical processing, wire and cable, heavy equipment, food handling/pharmaceutical and automotive industries. They display outstanding resistance to heat, bases, many solvents, ozone and steam, and are engineered to thrive in harsh environments.
