Research & Development

There are many drivers to Research and Development.

Development in manufacturing techniques influences the quality and efficiencies applied within the Production Department. Industry demands a material or product's performance to reach new limits of the application or to provide safer working in arduous conditions.

In many cases, new legislation designed to reduce our environmental impact has driven technological advancements that put further on polymer science to meet the increased demands of tribology and physical properties.

Fluorocarbon's engineers both contribute and advise within leading Polymer and Industry bodies. This enables us to both understand and influence our and our customer's industries take in new technologies or improvements in existing processes or equipment.
