Today’s safe and fuel efficient trucks, buses and automobiles rely on the unique, high performance properties of FluoroTechnology products used throughout each vehicle. From engines and brakes to fuel components and electronics, every automotive system uses FluoroTechnology’s durability, heat, chemical resistance and vapor barrier.

Fluoropolymers used in wire coatings increase reliability of engine compartment wiring and gauges and improves auto safety by helping to reduce engine compartment fires. Fluoropolymers, including fluoroelastomers, enable chemical and heat resistant gaskets and o-rings, improving reliability and the length of time between maintenance and service. Cylinder head coatings and hoses made with FluoroTechnology increase fuel efficiency and reduce fugitive gasoline vapor emissions. Fluorotelomer-based surface protection treatments protect automobile carpets and seats against stains, soil, oil and water.

The use of FluoroTechnology in the automotive industry supports more than 59,000 jobs in the U.S. and almost 72,000 jobs in Europe. Globally, FluoroTechnology materials and products specific to the automotive industry generate a total of $147.9 billion in economic output.1
