Perfluoropolyether Market: Introduction

Perfluoropolyether is among the family of fluorinated synthetic fluid. PFPE is a long chain organofluorine polymer consisting of carbon, oxygen and fluorine atoms. In terms of physical appearance it is colorless and odorless in nature and is completely inert to most chemical agents including oxygen. Perfluoropolyether is compatible with other liquids and materials over a high range of temperature from -40oC to 200oC. Perfluoropolyether have specific end use applications according to which different molecular structures of PFPE such as linear or pendant are applied. Perfluoropolyether find prominent application as a lubricant where they are used to formulate the most thermooxidatively stable lubricants. They are long chain fluoropolyether that wets the surface well and are slippery in nature which makes them as an ideal lubricant. Moreover, oxidative stability of the compound extends the component life and are well suited for demanding environmental conditions. Other properties such as chemical inertness imparts excellent stability in harsh environmental conditions and very low reactivity with other chemicals or surfaces. They can be available in various viscosities from very light for low-temperature applications to very viscous for application in heavy loaded applications. PFPE can be used directly as a lubricating oil or it can be combined with various thickeners to form variety of perfluoropolyether greases. Therefore, perfluoropolyether finds increasing applications in automotive industry, aerospace, electronics and coating applications. Thus, Perfluoropolyether market is slated to grow at healthy pace owing to its increasing usage in the application segments.
