PFAS and the future of Fluoropolymers

Fluoropolymers are considered polymers of low concern (PLC) because they do not dissolve or contaminate water and cannot enter or accumulate in a person’s bloodstream.

laboratory testing PCTFE

What is PCTFE? Polychlorotrifluoroethylene

PCTFE, Kel- F® or Neoflon®, is a homopolymer of chlorotrifluoroethylene with unique properties. Its resistance to cold flow, dimensional stability, rigidity, low gas permeability, and low moisture
absorption are superior to other fluoropolymers.



Often chosen for applications in demanding applications across a wide range of industries such as Aerospace, Chemical, Nuclear and Oil & Gas; High-Performance Plastic and Fluoropolymers are generally differentiated by their temperature stability, but also their mechanical properties.
But how do you know whether you should you use PTFE or PEEK?

PEEK powder

What is PEEK? Polyetheretherketone

PEEK is a colourless organic thermoplastic polymer from the PAEK family, used in engineering applications. PEEK was initially manufactured in 1977 by imperial Chemical Industries (ICI), 3 years later the commercialisation of PEEK polymers, including glass and carbon filled products began.
