PCTFE or (Polychlorotrifluoroethylene) is a homopolymer of Chlorotrifluoroethylene. The replacement of a single fluorine atom on the carbon backbone with a chlorine atom changes the properties of the fluoropolymer to allow melt processing. Through melt processing, PCTFE resin can be modified to give different mechanical and optical properties by controlling the crystallinity of the material.
the UNIQUE PROPERTIES OF PCTFE INCLUDE:
AFT Fluorotec can supply PCTFE in thin transparent sheets, with a very low crystalline structure, which offers exceptional optical properties, with the material looking similar to glass.
We can supply PCTFE moulded or extruded into rod, tube, sheet or plate to be CNC machined into a finished component. PCTFE can also be supplied in a modified form as tape, oils, tubing, and as a coating.
