Halocarbon PCTFE Technology for Low-Molecular Weight Oligomers

What Are PCTFE Oligomers?

PCTFE oligomers are engineered fluids that consist of only a few repeating CTFE monomer units. These low-molecular weight oligomeric materials differ from the high-molecular weight polymeric thermoplastics of CTFE in a number of ways. PCTFE oligomers are fluid in nature, taking on liquid, grease, or wax forms which can be tuned depending upon the degree of oligomerization. Halocarbon PCTFE technology is designed using advanced fluorochemistry to engineer highly these highly-specialized fluids, which are used as lubricants and process fluids in a wide range of cutting-edge applications.

Traditional and Fluorinated Metalworking Fluids: A Brief Overview

What are Traditional Metalworking Fluids?

Metalworking fluids, also known as cutting fluids or coolants, are liquids used in metalworking operations such as cutting, abrading, and metal forming to reduce friction between the workpiece and the tool. Cutting fluids provide these processes with many benefits, including better surface finishes, longer tool life, lower energy consumption, enhanced precision, and better corrosion protection. Halocarbon offers an elite, niche class of metalworking fluids, formulated through years of expert specialization and breakthroughs in fluorochemistry (PCTFE).

The Benefits of Metalworking Fluids for Refractory Metal Processing

Refractory metal metalworking fluids are engineered synthetic fluids formulated to enhance and extend tool life by improving surface finish and removing destructive friction at the contact point between the tool and the workpiece. Premium-quality metalworking fluids provide machine operations with a safe solution for low-risk, effective machining, forming, and shaping of complex substrates. Workpiece quality is improved by removing swarfs from the surface and by reducing the risk of in-process corrosion. Metalworking fluids are chemically inert, nonflammable, and formulated for numerous industrial applications.

Halocarbon uses advanced fluorochemical technology to create unmatched metalworking fluid solutions and is the first fluorinated materials producer to offer PCTFE-based lubricants. Halocarbon’s collection of metalworking fluids include a broad range of viscosities and the option of an anti-corrosion additive.
