Freon Reaction to Plastics

{0 Comments}

A brief summary of the effect of Freon compounds on various plastic materials follows. However, compatibility should be tested for specific applications. Differences in polymer structure and molecular weight, plasticizers, temperature, and pressure may alter the resistance of the plastic toward the Freon compound. Teflon TFE-fluorocarbon resin: No swelling observed when submerged in Freon liquids, …
