Global Nafion Market – Overview

Nafion is a type of copolymer. It is a sulfonated tetrafluroethylene based flouropolymer. Nafion is supremely ion-conductive and it operates as a cation exchange polymer. It offers excellent chemical and thermal stabilities and provides superior mechanical strength. Another key property of nafion is that it remains quite stable even at high temperatures – at around 190° C. In addition to this, it also has comparatively higher functional temperatures with respect other organic polymers.
