Fluorotechnology Makes Important Products for Vital Industries Possible

Tom Flanagin

FluoroTechnology is the use of fluorine chemistry to create any fluorinated product. When fluorine and carbon atoms join together, they create a powerful chemical bond. The use and manipulation of this bond gives FluoroTechnology its distinct properties of strength, durability, heat-resistance and stability. These properties are critical to the reliable and safe function of myriad products that industry and consumers rely on every day.
