GFL - Flouropolymers

Fluoropolymers are one of the most integral building blocks of modern world, ranging from automobiles to telecommunications, their unique properties power inventions that lead industries towards efficiency and better performance. From chemical resistance to harsh outdoor exposure, Fluoropolymers stand a broad scope of aggression, while ensuring heat stability and good electrical properties. They are widely used in automotive, aerospace, semiconductors, electronics and common household appliances because of their unique non-adhesive and low friction properties as well as their superior heat, chemical and weather resistance and superior electrical properties compared to the other polymers.

Fluoropolymers portfolio

INOFLON® PTFE RESINS

Inoflon® PTFE is an engineering plastic designed for high performance under some of most extreme conditions. Known for its exceptional chemical resistance, low coefficient of friction, outstanding weatherability, dielectric strength, thermal stability, flame resistance and a wide range of service temperatures, our PTFE resins are the material of choice for a broad range of industries. The Inoflon® brand of PTFE is widely used worldwide for various applications such as bearings and seals, pipes and tubes, weather-resistant architectural coatings, high quality cook wares, automotive fuel hoses, gaskets, wire insulation and also for some of the most sophisticated defence and aerospace applications.

INOFLON® PFA RESINS

INOFLON® PFA resins provide excellent processability because of lower melt viscosity than PTFE along with excellent heat & chemical resistance, dielectric strength, flame resistance, and weatherability similar to that of PTFE. Being suitable for conventional melt processes such as molding and extrusion, INOFLON® PFA resins are widely used for corrosion resistance in valves, pumps, and fittings as well as for tubing applications such as wires, cables, and tubes. INOFLON® PFA Dispersions and Powders grades find extensive use in a variety of coating applications.

INOFLON® FEP RESINS

Inoflon® FEP Resins are melt processable fluoroplastic processed by conventional melt extrusion techniques transfer and Injection molding processes. Being highly melt-processable due to their lower melting temperatures compared to PFA, they are ideal for cable insulation, tube extrusion, and molding for lining components application. A unique blend of properties such as low dielectric constant, transparency and UV resistance along with the characteristic resistance to corrosion, heat, and flame of Fluoropolymers, makes INOFLON® FEP highly applicable in the high-speed extrusion of flame-resistant coated wires, high-end LAN cables, high-frequency cables as well as cost-effective corrosion protection of valves, pumps, fittings, and vessels.

FLUONOX® FKM

FLUONOX® Raw gums and Cure incorporated Precompounds Fluoroelastomers offer exceptional chemical resistance at a wide range of operating temperatures compared to conventional elastomeric materials. FLUONOX® FKM products are widely known for their long service life in demanding sealing applications for the automotive, aerospace, CPI, and oil & gas industries.

INOFLARTM PVDF RESINS

InoflarTM PVDF Resins are known for their high mechanical strength, exceptional abrasion resistance and very good UV resistance while being highly non-reactive with a service temperature of up to 150°C. InoflarTM PVDF homopolymer and copolymer products serve a variety of applications such as corrosion resistance in CPI, Oil & Gas and semiconductor industries, Architectural coatings, membranes as well as flame resistant wire and cable insulations.

INOLUBTM FLUOROPOLYMER ADDITIVES

Additives are typically added to base polymer/formulations in order to improve their properties and make them suitable for a range of applications. GFL offers Fluoropolymer additives under the brand name INOLUBTM and has created some exciting breakthroughs and innovations which has led to led to better product performance and a better experience for the consumer, buyer, or end-user.
