Hyflon® AD is a family of amorphous perfluoropolymers which resemble semi-crystalline ones in their performance properties.
A key distinctive feature of Hyflon® AD polymers is their solubility in selected solvents. In particular, their high solubility in perfluorinated solvents and their low solution viscosities make Hyflon® AD suitable for solution process technologies.
Hyflon® AD can provide uniform and thin films or coatings (down to submicron thicknesses) by casting or coating techniques and thermal treatments, well below the typical baking temperatures of semi-crystalline perfluoropolymers.
Hyflon® AD is used in the production of pellicles for electronics (microlithography), thanks to its unique properties:
Hyflon® AD is suitable for the realization of membranes for gas separation thanks to:
