Unformatted text preview: categories: fluoroelastomers, some of which are curable and fluorothermoplastics which possess excellent processability. Due to the high stability of fluorine-carbon bond, fluoropolymers have excellent chemical and heat resistance, low friction coefficient, and low permeability. Figure 1.1 showed the polymerization process of PTFE. C C F F n F F polymerization C C F F F F n Tetrafluoroethylene PTFE Figure 1.1 Polymerization of PTFE...
