FluoroPel 100LC-F is a C6 fluoroacrylic copolymer resin. This resin is soluble in most fluorosolvents. After dilution to either 0.2 or 2%, 100LC-F is used to coat membranes, mesh and other venting devices. Thin films dry in a few minutes at room temperature to a surface energy of about 10 dynes/cm. Warming to 90°C for 10 minutes optimizes adhesion and smoothness of the film. Diluted FluoroPel 100LC-F is generally applied by dip coating or spraying. On membranes, mesh and filters, FluoroPel does not occlude pores and helps achieve oleophobicity grades up to 7. This formulation of FluoroPel can be diluted with a 1:1 mix of fluorosolvent and organic solvent (MEK, ethyl-acetate, butyl-acetate, etc.)

Size: 25 grams

Form: Solid

Application methods: Immersion, spin, dipping, etc.

Dilution Instructions: The 100LC-F solid must be stored in a freezer at -20°C. Crush the cold and frozen 100LC-F in a blender or mortar and pestle (crushing is easier when the 100LC-F is very cold). Add the crushed pellets of 100LC-F to fluorosolvent slowly (0.2% of weight of solvent) with stirring using a magnetic stir bar. Stir till all the solids are completely dissolved (with a final concentration of 2%) and filter with a 20 micrometer pore size paper or nylon filter if needed.
