Nafion™ Membranes, Dispersions, and Resins in Chemical Production

Enhance Ion Exchange and Increase Chemical Production

Chemical purity, high yield, and process efficiency are the most critical performance measurements of a chemical production facility. To boost high-quality production, chemical manufacturers need durable resins, efficient membranes, and high-value catalysts.

These resins, membranes, and catalysts need to thrive consistently in incredibly harsh environments to yield high-purity substances and streamline production.

Nafion™ ion-exchange materials play an important role in many chemical processing applications. These membranes, dispersions, and resins help ultra-high purity chemical producers improve yields and quality, providing unparalleled performance and durability in numerous chemical industry applications. They include:

  • Ion Exchange: Nafion™ resins serve as long-lasting, perfluorinated cation exchange resins that can perform in harsh temperatures and chemical environments where other non-fluorinated resins cannot.

  • Electrolysis: The selectivity of Nafion™ membranes in various electrochemical processes provides ultra-high purity compounds, such as those needed in semiconductor manufacturing.

  • Catalysts: Nafion™ polymers act as super-acid catalysts. When used in solid pellet form, a Nafion™ catalyst can be reused numerous times, lowering total cost of ownership.
