Introduction to Fluoropolymers

Materials, Technology and Applications

Introduction to Fluoropolymers demystifies fluoropolymers for a wide audience of designers, engineers, sales staff and managers. This important group of high-performance polymers has applications across a wide range of market sectors, including automotive, aerospace, medical devices, high performance apparel, oil & gas, renewable energy / solar photovoltaics, electronics / semiconductor, pharmaceuticals, and chemical processing.

Dr. Ebnesajjad covers the history and applications of a wide variety of materials, including expanded polytetrafluoroethylene, polyvinyl fluoride, vinylidene fluoride polymers and fluoroelastomers, just to name a few. Properties and applications are illustrated by real-world examples as diverse as waterproof clothing, vascular grafts and coatings for aircraft interiors. The different applications of fluoropolymers show the benefits of a group of materials that are highly water-repellant and flame-retardant, with unrivalled lubrication properties and a high level of biocompatibility. Health and safety and environmental aspects are also covered throughout the book.

Audience

Engineers, Scientists, Product Designers, Manufacturing, Technical Sales engaged in, or evaluating applications of Fluoropolymers, across sectors including: automotive, aerospace, medical devices, high performance apparel, oil & gas, renewable energy / solar photovoltaics, electronics / semiconductor, pharmaceuticals, chemical

Reviews

  • "Until now, says fluoride consultant Ebnesajjad, the only sources of information about fluoropolymers and fluorocarbons have been snippets here and there in studies of other matters, and brochures from commercial manufacturers…Therefore, with occasional help from colleagues, he has compiled information from a wide range of sources to provide an introductory reference."--Reference & Research Book News, October 2013
