Evolving the Next Generation of Fluoroproducts

Chemours Fluoroproducts help give ordinary things extraordinary capabilities, from the cars we drive to the smartphones we carry.


Fluoropolymers and fluorochemicals from the business that invented them

Air conditioning with lower global warming potential (GWP). Communications equipment with built-in fire prevention to keep emergency responders safer. Clothing that weaves in renewably sourced chemistry to shed water like a duck’s back. When we harness the power of fluorochemistry, we change lives. And life.

Every day, our fluoropolymers help boost reception for smartphone antennae, stretch maintenance levels for heavy machinery, and protect circuits and engines from heat. We’re always evolving our chemistry to support new applications and meet higher standards.

For example: we have evolved the chemistry of automotive air conditioning to create Opteon™ YF, a refrigerant with a 99.9% reduction in global warming potential (GWP), compared to the current alternative, R-134a. In the mobile air conditioning market, the number of cars using HFO-1234yf is expected to grow to 145 million by the end of 2020. We estimate that, by the end of 2020, the use of HFO technology like Opteon YF in place of legacy refrigerants will result in the reduction of 113 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions, which is the equivalent of taking about 24 million cars off the road for one year.
