Uses & Applications

Why FluoroIntermediates?

Fluorine has been incorporated into refrigerants, propellants, expansions agents, fire extinguishants, precision cleaning, specialty polymer, and many other applications for decades, as fluorine can impart chemical and electrical resistance, thermal stability, low surface energy, and other useful functionality required for use in a wide variety of demanding applications.

DuPont FluoroIntermediate compounds can safely and efficiently introduce fluorine into your specialty polymers, pharmaceutical or agricultural compounds, and in other diverse and emerging industrial and research applications.

Specialty Fluoropolymers

Many of the DuPont FluoroIntermediate compounds are used as building blocks in the manufacture of fluoropolymer compounds, particularly HFP, TFE, and vinyl ether compounds.
