Description & Characteristics

Flutec PC6, C10F18, is a fully-fluorinated, odourless, colourless, non-volatile liquid containing a mixture of cis and trans isomers and has the following characteristics:

  • Non-toxic
  • Non-flammability
  • Excellent chemical and thermal stability
  • High solubility for gases particularly oxygen.

  • Applications

    Flutec PC6 finds many applications in the cosmetic industry where its addition to formulations can enhance protective and film-forming properties.  It is possible to obtain very stable emulsions in glycerol, diglycerol and other polyhydric emulsifying agents and it’s high solubility of Oxygen means it finds use as an products delivering oxygen to the skin, such as post laser resurfacing creams, bubble face masks, eye creams  etc.
