Fluorine’s unusual properties power a hard-working class of chemicals that provide answers to many of the world’s most difficult challenges.
Overview: fluorochemicals are engineered for high purity, performance and sustainability – including our next-generation C4 chemistry, offering a favorable safety and environmental profile for its intended uses. Whatever your application, you can rely on Reach America’s fluorochemicals to provide a practical, reliable and cost-effective solution.
Fluorinated chemicals have a long history of delivering outstanding performance in a wide variety of challenging applications. When fluorine atoms join together with carbon atoms, they create a powerful, stable chemical bond. The use of this bond is what gives fluorinated chemicals their distinct properties, providing strength, resilience and durability to a variety of products.
RA Fluoronated Liquids
Are synthetic organofluorinechemical compounds that have multiple fluorine atoms. They can be polyfluorinated or fluorocarbon-based (perfluorinated). As surfactants, they are more effective at lowering the surface tension of water than comparable hydrocarbon surfactants, and, as such, the global demand for fluorinated solvents has been steadily growing. Fluorinated solvents are an excellent choice for companies wishing to minimize their impact on the environment and safeguard employee health without compromising profitability or performance.
A fluoropolymer is a fluorocarbon-based polymer with multiple carbon–fluorine bonds. It is characterized by a high resistance to solvents, acids, and bases. The fluorine in a fluoropolymer is electrically negative, which gives it the property of not bonding easily with other materials. That’s what makes a fluoropolymer non-stick. Fluoropolymers are in high demand for use in industrial coatings because they possess some very desirable qualities.
A superacid is an acid with an acidity greater than that of 100% pure sulfuric acid, which has a Hammett acidity function of −12. According to the modern definition, superacid is a medium in which the chemical potential of the proton is higher than in pure sulfuric acid. Common uses of superacids include providing an environment to create, maintain, and characterize carbocations. Carbocations are intermediates in numerous useful reactions such as those forming plastics and in the production of high-octane gasoline.
