ZOTEK F®

Banner-Zotek-F

High performance closed cell, cross-linked fluoropolymer foam based on PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride).

ZOTEK F foams are inherently flame retardant releasing very little heat and only small quantities of smoke during combustion. They are biologically inert and offer:

  • a range of densities from 30kg/m3 to 75kg/m3
  • resistance to a wide range of solvents and aggressive chemicals
  • thermal stability up to 160°C / 320ᵒF
  • excellent flammability resistance
  • low smoke & toxicity
  • resistance to UV, nuclear radiation and ageing
  • high dielectric strength

The ZOTEK F range comprises:

Grades for the general industry

  • ZOTEK F35
  • ZOTEK F40 HT (High Temperature resistance up to 160ᵒC / 320ᵒF)
  • ZOTEK F75 HT
  • ZOTEK F40 HT LS (High Temperature, Low Smoke) (listed to UL 723/ ASTM E-84 “Standard Method of Test of Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials”)
  • ZOTEK F42 HT LS ( meets FM 4910 “Clean-room Materials Flammability Test protocol”) is used in the production of our T-FIT® insulation system

 Grades for the aviation industry (OEM)

  • ZOTEK F30 (BMS 8-371D; AIMS04-14-009)
  • ZOTEK F38 HT (BMS 8-371D; AIMS04-14-009)
  • ZOTEK F74 HT

Grades for the aviation industry (interior)

  • ZOTEK F OSU flexible, semi-rigid and rigid

Grades for the aerospace industry

  • ZOTEK F30 (NASA)
  • ZOTEK F40 HT (NASA)
  • ZOTEK F75 HT (NASA)

ZOTEK F foams can be manipulated using conventional conversion methods, such as die-cutting, water jet cutting, sawing, laminating, and welding into continuous rolls. They can also be thermoformed into complex single component structures providing benefits over multi-layer foam systems, such as weight and cost reduction.

ZOTEK F foams are used extensively in:

  • the commercial, business and military aircraft and aerospace industries where they meet the stringent industry flammability requirements
  • high specification building and construction projects where UV resistance is key
  • industrial applications such as chemical engineering, pharmaceutical production, and medical equipment
  • semiconductor & pharmaceutical clean-room environments (sealing and insulation applications)
  • the manufacturing of our T-FIT insulation system
  • the electrics and electronics industries as low closure force seals
