FAQ What is fluorine resin ?
FAQ It is a plastic with excellent properties such as Heat resistance, Chemical resistance, Low stickiness and Low friction/Non-conductance. It is often called "Teflon®". The belts or tapes which are produced by using fluorine resin as raw material are often called "Teflon belt" or "Teflon tape."
FAQ What is Teflon® ?
FAQ Teflon® is a registered trademark of the fluorine resin manufactured by DuPont company. Many people tend to feel like “All Fluorine resin is Teflon®” because the name “Teflon®” is a well-known brand. Other than “Teflon®”, you can see various product names for Fluorine resin in the following list.

FAQ Information about the Heat resistance of fluorine resin !
FAQ Fluorine resin itself is a resin with a high capacity to resist heat/flame. Heat/flame resistance capacity also depends on the usage environment. However the maximum continuous applicable temperature of PTFE, which is a type of fluorine resin is 260°C. Moreover, it stands even with low temperatures and can be used continuously in an environment with temperatures below -180°C.
FAQ Information about the chemical resistance of fluoroplastic!
FAQ Fluoroplastic is the plastic with an excellent chemical resistance. Fluoroplastic is not invaded by acid/alkaline, organic solvent, oils, and fats. The product called "Teflon tube", "Teflon lining" has such properties. It is, therefore, used for transportation of liquids such as semiconductor/liquid crystal manufacturing equipment, chemical plants, and laboratory equipment where various chemicals are used.
FAQ Information about the slipperiness of fluoroplastic!
FAQ As shown in the following table, fluoroplastic has low coefficient of friction which is outstanding among all the solid substances. The difference between coefficient of dynamic friction and coefficient of static friction is small. So the sliding becomes very smooth if fluoroplastic is used as a sliding material. Hence, it can be used for oilless bearing, standard bearing, etc.

FAQ Information about the anti-adhesion qualities of fluoroplastic!
FAQ Fluoroplastic has very high anti-adhesion qualities.
Even if an adhesive such as sticky rice cake or Sol are attached to fluoroplastic, it can be easily removed from the surface.
Therefore, it can be used for cook sheet and meal and dough conveyor belt.

FAQ What is the difference between "Fluorine" present in the tooth powder and the "Fluoroplastic" made by Chukoh Chemical Industries Ltd.?
FAQ

Both are the "Fluorine compound" that contains elemental fluorine. However, here the type of the chemical compound used for fluorine compound being used in tooth powder is different than the type of the chemical compound used for the fluoroplastic made by us.

The fluorine element in the tooth powder is used for medical and health application, and our product 'fluoroplastic' is widely used for industrial applications.

FAQ Do you have any other kinds of tape except fluoroplastic tape?
FAQ We are manufacturing many types of adhesive tapes made by fluoroplastic, but we also provide adhesive tapes by using polyimide and ultra-high polymer polyethylene as a base material.

FAQ How do I get a product catalog?
FAQ We provide a catalog download page.
For other materials, please contact us separately.
FAQ In what kind of industries, fluoroplastic is being used?
FAQ

It is used in all the manufacturing industries as follows:

Industries using fluoroplastic
・Semiconductor manufacturing: Tubes, PTFE tanks, Skived tapes
・Food manufacturing: Belts, Fluoroplastic coating, Cook sheets, Fabrics
・Packaging-related: Adhesive tapes, Heat seal belts
・Automobile manufacturing: Tubes, Braid hose
・Chemical plant: Lining
・Building industry: Fluoroplastic membrane
・Liquid crystal manufacturing: Adhesive tapes, Fabrics, Skived tapes
and others

FAQ What is the method of disposing the old products?
FAQ

(Visitor using the standard home)
Dispose it as incombustible product according to the rules of each municipality.

(Visitor of a company or an organization)
It is an industrial waste; therefore, dispose it according to the "Waste Disposal and Public Cleansing Law".

FAQ Where can I buy the product of Chukoh Chemical Industries Ltd.?
FAQ We have distributors across the country. For more information, please contact the nearest branch. You can also buy it from our online shop.
FAQ The color is slightly different than the product you purchased earlier...
FAQ The brown color of fabric/adhesive tape is derived from the starch applied to the glass cloth of the base material.
The color difference occurs due to the changes in the starch deposit, but it does not cause any problems in usage and features.
FAQ Consolidation of Adhesive tape product No.(For "FR"notation)
FAQ Please kindly be noticed that we have consolidated with regard to the product Nos. of UL proprietary adhesive tape products as of July 1,2009.
For details, please see the right table.
However, the products themselves remain unchanged, so you can use them same as before without any problem.
