AD 40H SF is a high purity Hyflon®
AD 40H perfluoropolymer solution in a perfluorinated solvent. This can be considered ready-to-use solution suitable for application in the most demanding solution process technologies.
- Amorphous glassy polymer structure.
- Solubility in perfluorinated solvents.
- Low dielectric constant of 2.0 at 1 kHz.
Excellent optical properties:
- High UV transmittance.
- Low refractive index.
AD can provide uniform and thin films or coatings (down to submicron thickness if required) by casting or coating techniques and thermal treatments, well below the typical baking temperatures of semicrystalline perflouropolymers.
Key features of Hyflon®
AD amorphous perfluoropolymers:
