  • Fluoropolymers exhibit the lowest coefficient of friction of any synthetic material, as well as offering extreme temperature and chemical resistance. Thus, our micronized O-series fluoropolymer additives and dispersions impart such desirable properties as friction-reduction, corrosion-resistance, and chemical resistance - across a myriad of material matrices within or upon which they are incorporated .

  • PFAS is a chemical name for perfluoroalkyl substances. This is an umbrella term encompassing all fluoropolymers. However, it is imperative to realize that not all PFAS are created equal. There are two major delineations to consider: (1) polymeric, and the (2) water-soluble non-polymeric varieties. The water-soluble, small molecular weight category represent those of greatest environmental and biopersistent concern. Please realize Odyssey Polymers engineers our unique additive products to be polymeric in nature, minimizing or in many cases eliminating PFAS-of-concern.

  • Polymer Processing Additives, or PPAs for short, are compounded fluoroelastomer-based resin particles that impart slip and friction-reducing characteristics to the materials in which they are incorporated. Fluoroelastomers are indeed a variety of fluoropolymers.

  • The fluoropolymer industry needs a paradigm shift. It needs a supplier who designs product from the outset that are sustainable, not simply modifying decades-old fluoroadditive technologies. It demands a company that offers a greater degree of technical and customer support – putting the customers at the nucleus of all we do and all we are. It demands the transparency of outside laboratory analysis to validate PFAS claims, not “internal test methods” Embrace change – partner with Odyssey Polymers.
