FluoroTechnology products offer unique, high performance properties to the aerospace industry, enabling the production and operation of modern aircraft. FluoroTechnology enables high and low temperature chemical resistant tubes, hoses and fluid seals; high and low temperature brake and hydraulic fluids used in aircraft control systems and brakes; and ultra-high frequency wire and cable insulation necessary for navigation, fly-by-wire control and aircraft communications.
Properties intrinsic to fluorinated chemicals also allow for unmatched oil/water, stain and soil protection, providing hygienic, longer lasting and lower-maintenance commercial aircraft interiors, which helps keep air travel affordable. Additionally, FluoroTechnology used in firefighting foam enables on-the-ground aircraft fires to be extinguished quickly, the difference between life and death for pilots, passengers and firefighters.
The use of FluoroTechnology in the aerospace industry supports more than 19,000 jobs in the U.S. and more than 36,000 jobs in Europe. Globally, FluoroTechnology materials and products specific to the aerospace industry generate a total of $57.1 billion in economic output.1
