The solvents used for these purposes must be environmentally save:
- no ozone depletion potential (ODP free)
- only a low global warming potential (GWP)
We developed a new method to produce a dispersion of PTFE with the corresponding properties using HFE-7100 as a solvent basis. This product is widely used to coat medicinal syringes and catheters.
We are currently evaluating other applications of our patented PTFE dispersion.
The protection of electronic devices is a new application with great potential.
Another interesting development is the use of the dispersion as a mould release formulation.
