R-22, a precursor of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and other fluoropolymers, is produced from hydrofluoric acid (AHF) and chloroform, raw materials supplied respectively by FLUORSID and Nouryon themselves, serving industries like automotive, electronics, energy, chemical and many others.
Fluoroplastics are resistant to corrosion and heat, especially used in equipment that comes into contact with aggressive chemicals. In addition to R-22, the CF Carbons plant also produces hydrochloric acid and aqueous hydrofluoric acid.
Fluorsid has a total capacity of approx. 150,000 MT/y of aluminium fluoride, in two sites:
- Cagliari, with 110,000 MT/y;
- Odda, with 40,000 MT/y.
Aluminium fluoride is available in bulk (silo trucks or bulk vessels) or bagged in 1 MT big bags, 1.5 MT big bags, 15, 25 or 50 kg paper bags on pallets.
