Americhem Fluoropolymer Resources

What are Fluoropolymers?

Melt Processible Fluoropolymers are injection molding versions of PTFE. They have outstanding resistance to chemicals and temperature. They have excellent dielectric properties as well as low friction and low wear.

The Americhem Advantage in Fluoropolymers

Americhem has extensive experience compounding FP’s with fillers and additives to improve strength, stiffness and creep resistance. Improved wear and friction as well as reduced shrinkage and warpage are also achieved with fillers and additives.
