DuPont is a Leading Producer of Fluoropolymers
At DuPont, we are bringing more environmentally sustainable innovation in fluoropolymer science to the specialty chemicals industry. DuPont is a leading producer of fluoropolymers, including resins, additives, films, and finishes. Our products have exceptional resistance to high temperatures, chemical reaction, corrosion, and stress-cracking. In the fluoropolymers market, our Teflon® brand is one of the most recognized brands. We also feature other resins, including Tefzel® and Elvax®, fluorointermediates and methylamines.
While best known for its use as a coating in nonstick cookware and all-weather apparel, Teflon® is also the preferred fluoropolymer for a host of other applications and different processing techniques. It is widely used in such industries as automotive, chemical processing, semiconductor manufacturing, cabling materials, chemical handling, data communication, aerospace, electronics, building, and renewable energy.
The unique properties of Teflon® brand fluoropolymers include significant chemical and heat resistance, and a great ability to withstand corrosion in the most challenging environments.
For a host of applications, processing techniques and conditions, count on the mechanical toughness, conductivity, and low-friction properties of DuPont fluoropolymers.
- ECCtreme™ ECA is a new high temperature perfluoropolymer that can be used in ultra-harsh environments, with a potential operating rate of up to 300°C*. It maintains properties under high temperatures, pressures, and exposure to corrosive chemicals.
- Industrial products developed with Teflon® fluoropolymer coating, resin, additive, or film are exceptionally resistant to high temperatures, chemical reaction, corrosion, and stress cracking. Explore product information and other resources for industrial applications using the Teflon® brand.
- Serving the needs of a wide variety of industries, DuPont™ Capstone® surfactants and repellents help fuel your innovation. Short-chain DuPont™ Capstone® repellents and surfactants meet the goals of the U.S. EPA 2010/15 PFOA Stewardship Program. Explore product features, applications, technical specifications and stewardship information.
DuPont™ Tefzel® ETFE fluoropolymer resin is a modified ethylene-tetrafluoroethylene fluoropolymer available as pellets, or as powder for rotational molding. Tefzel® ETFE resin combines mechanical toughness with an outstanding chemical inertness that approaches that of DuPont™ Teflon® fluoropolymer resins.
