ZEFFLE: Next generation fluorourethanes and additives

ZEFFLE is a fluoropolymer resin used to formulate coatings with exceptional weatherability, resistance to corrosion and dirt pick-up, self cleaning properties and high adhesion to a wide range of substrates. ZEFFLE next generation fluorourethane is made with tetrafluoroethylene monomer, giving the polymer outstanding chemical, thermal, and weathering resistance. Utilization of ZEFFLE leads to the formulation of coatings with exceptional properties, making ZEFFLE one of the best polymer selections for service life and best weathering coatings available today.

ZEFFLE solventborne and waterborne fluorourethanes are used in a wide range of architectural and industrial paint and coating applications including coil coatings, anti-corrosion coatings, buildings, bridges, storage tanks, and virtually any structure or surface. ZEFFLE is also widely used in the production of photovoltaic (PV) panels, where coatings formulated with ZEFFLE are used to protect polyester backsheets. ZEFFLE can be formulated to achieve the severe weathering and damp heat test requirements necessary to meet IEC standards for PV panels. ZEFFLE coatings are formulated for OEM (coil coating, spray booth) or for field applied coatings. ZEFFLE coatings can be applied as a clear coat or they can be formulated in bright, vibrant colors.

ZEFFLE GH-701 is an additive to solvent-based coatings including our ZEFFLE GK product line. ZEFFLE GH-701 creates a hydrophilic surface on coatings which allows dirt and stains to be easily washed off by rainwater. It is suitable for sites where the aesthetics is important and/or repainting is difficult.
