Product Details

Perfluorooctanoic acid(PFOA)

Product description

Perfluorooctanoic acid(PFOA) is a per-fluorocarbon monocarboxylic acid that is an organic strong acid with low surface tension and high surface activity, and is used as efficient surfactant,dispersing agent and additive.The perfluorooctanoic acid and it's derogates as important organic intermediates can be used for synthesizing fluoridated hydrophobic and oleo phobic agent, and leather finishing agent. The temperature should be controlled at 140•c or below when the product is heated to melt, protecting it from decomposing.

Application

Perfuorooctanoic acid ammonium salt or sodium salt are anion surfactant with excellent performance, and indispensable raw materials for synthesizing fluororesin(such as PTFE,PVDF,FEP,and ETFE)and FLM.  The perfluorooctanoic acid is an efficient metal detergent,as well as intermediate  for synthesizing hydrophobic  and oleo phobic leather, paper and fiber finishing agent . It's detonates can be used as chromatographic fixer with high efficiency and high resolution.

Packaging, Transportation and Storage

1. It is packed in wide-neck glass bottles weighing up 1.5kg each one. Each batch of products is provided with Quality Inspection Report, each bottle is adhered to Certificate of Quality, and Product Name,Net Weight,Grade, Date of  Manufacture and Manufacture  are marked on the tag.

2.It is transported as dangerous chemicals, keeping from vibration. 

3.Should store it in a dry and clean place at an ambient temperature of 40•c or below,away from exposure to sun and heat.
