Product: Expanding usage of fluoropolymers across aerospace and automotive industries

Fluorochemicals have low reactivity, as they have high carbon-fluorine bond polarity. Fluorocarbons slowly break down in the environment; therefore, they are considered persistent organic pollutants. Several commercially valuable fluorocarbons contain hydrogen, chlorine, and bromine. Fluoropolymers are a family of high-performance plastics characterized by their strong carbon-fluorine (C-F) bonds. This unique atomic structure imparts desirable properties, including chemical resistance, thermal stability, and electrical insulation. They are used in various industries, including aerospace, automotive, electronics, and medical applications. However, they can be expensive, have limited processability based on grades, exhibit cold flow with some grades, and have high expansion rates. Specialty & inorganic fluorochemicals, including fluorosilicate, aluminum fluoride, cryolite, and silicofluoride, are commonly utilized in steel making, aluminum production, fumigation, pesticides, and herbicides. Inorganic fluorochemicals are also used to synthesize products such as pharmaceuticals, solar panels, toothpaste, lithium-ion batteries, rocket fuel, concrete, semiconductors, and LCDs.

End-User: Rising application in refrigeration and air conditioners

The automotive industry experiences substantial changes driven by CASE (Connected, Autonomous, Shared, and Electrified), fluorochemicals advance solutions offering design flexibility, enhancing system robustness, and increasing efficiency. The use of fluorochemicals in building & construction, including dry calcium fluoride and anhydrite, is widespread in various construction materials such as cement or ceramics. The fluorochemicals are used as substrates for producing other higher value-added chemical products. Fluorochemicals are used as a coating material for cables and electric wires for their excellent electrical properties. Fluorinated polyimide films with excellent transparency are used on mobile devices with foldable displays. Fluorochemical compounds are used in pharmaceuticals, and pesticides enhance the efficacy of products. Moreover, as a high purity level is required for the pharmaceutical manufacturing process, fluorochemicals are used in fluid transport equipment and control devices. Furthermore, in medical devices that must withstand strong sterilants, the chemical resistance of fluoro materials is necessary. Aqueous film-forming foams (AFFFs) are a tool for fighting large hydrocarbon fires. AFFFs contain fluorochemical surfactants and can be used by public, commercial, and military firefighting organizations.
