Our etched fluoropolymer products give you the bondable surfaces you need for enhanced performance and durability. Since 1952, Technetics PTFE & Polymer Solutions has been the leader in sodium ammonia fluoropolymer etching, ensuring you receive the long lasting, durable, uniform surface modification you require. When compared to sodium naphthalene processes, our sodium ammonia etching have been proven to be the preferred solution with its superior performance and design to give you the bondable surfaces you need on any fluoropolymer quickly and efficiently.
Etched products are available with one or more treated surfaces — including selective spot etching — on continuous roll films, flat sheet or the compound contours of three-dimensional parts. Our equipment can accommodate most commonly used formats, including:
Whatever type of virgin or filled fluoropolymer you are using, (PTFE, PFA, FEP, ETFE, PCTFE, PVDF, ECTFE, etc) our innovative etching techniques deliver the precise surface treatment required for an excellent bond every time. Treatment can be accomplished on one or more surfaces, or selectively within close tolerances on films, sheets, tubing or other three-dimensional shapes. Our compounds react with only the surface layer of fluoropolymers ensuring dimension and other properties remain largely unaffected.
We will take the time to talk out all the details of your specifications one on one to meet your particular job requirements. Our staff can design and produce customized:
Etched surfaces of fluoropolymers have a virtually unlimited shelf life as long as they are handled and stored properly. The proper storage conditions are:
