PFC1601V is a one percent fluoropolymer solution in a fluorosolvent (BP=160°C). Thin films dry in 4-6 hours at room temperature to a surface energy of about 16 dynes/cm. Heating to 180°C for 30 minutes optimizes adhesion and reduces the surface energy to about 10 dynes/cm. 1601V is recommended for spin, spray or blot applications where extreme UV resistance is needed. The silane functional version, 1601V-FS, is recommended for application to glass, oxide-rich, and conductive surfaces. PFC1601V is a great coating for electrowetting devices.
