Fluoropolymers can handle broad temperature ranges, aggressive chemicals and solvents, and are ideal for high purity applications. Many fluoroplastics also make excellent electrical insulators. Fluoroplastics have a low coefficient of friction and are generally very resistant to abrasion. Fluoroplastics can also be filled or alloyed to enhance properties even further. Teflon PTFE, FEP, PFA, Kynar...Read More »
Manufactured from ultra-pure Kynar PVDF polymer in process that uses only inert nitrogen gas to expand polymer sheet, ZOTEKÃ‚® F Foams are in lowest risk category for out-gassing of VOCs and ammonia. Polymer resins are recognized by semiconductor, biotech, and medical industries as having very low extractables that migrate from resin matrix, as well as optimal flammability properties and...Read More »
Featuring FM Global 4910 cleanroom materials flammability test approval, ZOTEKÃ‚® F 42 HT LS is recommended for use sealing and insulation applications where low smoke release and flame propagation is required in case of fire.

Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP), represents a truly groundbreaking advancement in structural reinforcement. Lightweight, strong, and green, they are changing the way the construction industry thinks about rebar. Unlike steel, FRPs don't rust and are far stronger than standard rebar. To learn why Fiber Reinforced Polymers are poised to change the way the world builds, see our video.Read More »
