This study will show the sensitivity of level of fluorination on several physical properties of a family of UV-curable fluoro-silicone coatings, including adhesion, solvent absorption, stiffness, and thermal oxidative stability.
Leveraging AGC's fluorination technologies and extensive experience in in-house drug discovery and the CDMO business built up in Japan, AGC, with the addition of MPC, will be able to offer its CDMO services from a broader asset base, catering to European customer requirements and expanding its presence in the European market.
Inhance is the world's provider of post-mold fluorination solutions and the innovator in fluorine-based barrier enhancement and surface activation technology.
"The great challenge for us has been to retain existing high standards of oil repellency - whilst eliminating long-chain fluorination. We have solved this problem by creating a special silicon dioxide backbone." The result - Nanoflex F-Bond, marketed under the umbrella brand INTELLIGENT HYBRIDS is based on liquid concentrates and is applied using common industrial dipping methods.
