Fluoroplastic Resin

Fluoroplastic resin solutions from DuPont offer performance at temperature extremes, chemical inertness, corrosion resistance, and mechanical toughness among their many properties.

The benefits of Teflon® fluoroplastic resin make it the preferred plastic for a host of applications and different processing techniques.

Nonmelt-Processible Fluoroplastics

Compression Molding
