TEFLON™ and TEFZEL™ fluoropolymers from CHEMOURS carry a carbon chain in their hearts, strong like a diamond with the protective, tough skin of fluorine atoms.
PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) and its derivatives (FEP, PFA, ETFE), discovered by chance by chemist Roy Plunkett in 1938, are now the most widely used class of high-performance plastics worldwide. TEFLON (TM) fluoropolymers from CHEMOURS are widely used in the electrical, wire and cable industries, as well as in applications in the automotive, chemicals/pharmaceuticals and semiconductor industries.
