Why use fluorine - the chemistry

Inspecting fluorination in the lab

About fluorine

  • Most reactive element - spontaneous reaction to form inert compounds
  • Alters surface characteristics & surface energy
  • Fluorine atom large enough to create physical barrier, but small enough to avoid straining backbone of polymer
  • Hydrogen atoms substituted by fluorine atoms within polymer

How flourination works 

How it Works

How Flourocarbon barriers work

Fluorocarbon barrier inhibits permeation by preventing contact between the solvent and the parent polymer
