The use of fluoroplastics for chemical processing


Adtech supplies to the chemical processing industry on a regular basis. At its core, the chemical industry converts raw materials (oil, gas, water, metals, and minerals) into over 70,000 products which, as consumers, we encounter on a daily basis. From fertilisers which support agriculture to the actual cars we drive, almost every facet of our life is made possible by the presence of chemicals and chemical processing.

As expected, however, there are several risks associated with the chemical processing industry. Because chemicals are inherently hazardous and a number of them are flammable, explosive, toxic or corrosive, it’s important for processing plants to use materials which can handle the aggressive manufacturing environment. At Adtech, we produce fluoroplastics particularly with this in mind.

Why fluoroplastics are ideal for the chemical processing industry

Our fluoroplastics have several key properties which means that they don’t interfere with chemical processing:

Chemical resistance

Most importantly, our fluoroplastics are highly chemically resistant. Chemicals that the material is resistant to include, but are not limited to, acetone, formic acid, hydrofluoric acid, nitric acid, diesel oil, phosphoric acid and sulphur dioxide.

Mechanical properties

Fluoroplastics have fantastic non-stick qualities – this is an added benefit in the chemical processing industry as it prevents a build-up of microbes and bacteria.

Thermal tolerance

Adtech’s fluoroplastics are ideal for use in very high and very low working temperatures, and can withstand temperatures of up to +260°C and -200°C.
