PRODUCTS & TECHNOLOGY: Fluorosurfactant-Free PVDF Resins

Thursday, December 18, 2008

Comment | More

Arkema Inc. announced the introduction of a Kynar 500® PVDF resin made using a new fluorosurfactant-free process. The company noted that perfluorinated surfactants such as perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) have come under scrutiny by the U.S. EPA and are subject to an EPA voluntary stewardship program seeking reductions in emissions and product content levels.

 

“As the leader in this industry, we wanted to proactively develop a way to completely eliminate the use of these fluorinated surfactants in our manufacturing process,” said Erwoan Pezron, Arkema’s worldwide managing director for fluoropolymers. The company is the developer and manufacturer of Kynar 500 PVDF and the recently commercialized Kynar Aquatec® PVDF technology

 

High-performance coatings based on PVDF resins are used for applications in commercial, industrial, and residential buildings. The coatings are used on aluminum, galvanized steel, and aluminized steel, with applications that include metal roofing, siding, window and door frames, wall panels, and other miscellaneous metal trim and components.
