Description & Characteristics

Flutec PC1, C6F14, is a fully-fluorinated, odourless, colourless liquid with the following characteristics:

  • Non Toxic
  • Non flammability
  • High solubility for gases particularly oxygen
  • Excellent chemical and thermal stability
  • Applications

    Flutec PC1 finds may applications in the cosmetic industry where its addition to formulations can enhance protective and film forming properties add texture to mousse type formulation or to assist in creating bubbles in self foaming products.

    Safety, Handling and Storage

    Although Flutec PC1 is considered biologically and chemically inert, good laboratory practice should be observed when handling.  Flutec PC1 has an indefinite shelf life if properly stored in its original sealed container.  Safety data sheets are available on request.
