Pagination or Media Count:
A convenient method has been found for the conversion of a polyethylene surface to a corresponding fluoro analog. The process involves the direct, uncatalyzed reaction of gaseous fluorine with the polymer surface. The resultant surface displays many properties attributable to completely fluorinated polymers such as Teflon. These properties include solvent resistance, thermal stability, and chemical inertness.
