Did you know that using fluoropolymers instead of traditional materials can help you reduce your CO2 footprint?
High-performance polymers can extend the lifecycle of many important products, saving resources and preventing excess waste.
You must be asking how, by using fluoropolymers, you can produce green energy.
The answer is that due to their unique properties, fluoropolymers play a significant role in increasing the lifetime of components, offering:
- Excellent chemical, corrosion, and abrasion resistance;
- Low and elevated temperature resistance and therefore increase the lifetime of components
- Lower maintenance costs
- Increased efficiency in manufacturing processes
- Enabling sustainable energy and easing the remote location of installations
- Design flexibility
Photovoltaic systems use semiconducting materials to convert light into electricity. That is the technology behind solar panels, one of the most popular renewable energy sources in the world.
Fluoropolymers offer specific benefits to the front sheets, back sheets, and vents (fluoropolymers are used e.g., in junction boxes) that make up the photovoltaic system.
Fluoropolymers help protect the front sheets by providing weather resistance, ultraviolet blocking, optical transparency, and fire resistance.
They improve the electrical insulation on the back sheets by providing protection from weathering and chemicals
Fluoropolymers are being used to improve the performance of fuel cells and flow batteries like Li-ion batteries. Lithium-ion batteries are safe for the environment and can produce substantial amounts of hydrogen without releasing CO2.
Can also be utilised as binders to enable stationary energy storage and long-term storage of renewable energies, as well as chemical, oxidation, and heat resistance.
Offshore or on land, wind turbines are exposed to extreme environmental conditions.
Control rooms and turbine blade components both use fluoropolymers. They are also necessary as coatings to provide long-lasting protection against weathering, extend maintenance cycles, and extend product life.
Fluoropolymers are continually developing to provide dependable high-voltage batteries, durable fuel cells, flexible and weather-resistant PV front sheets, and robust wind turbine systems, all of which are essential components of future green energy solutions.
