Polychlorotrifluoroethylene (PCTFE) is a synthetic resin formed by the polymerization of chlorotrifluoroethylene. It is highly resistant to high temperature and chemicals. PCTFE is primarily used in specialty applications in chemical, electrical, and aerospace industries. It is similar to teflon with slight difference in chemical structure PCTFE offers unique combination of physical and mechanical properties. These include non-flammability, high optical transparency, chemical resistance, and near zero moisture absorption. Once cooled, PCTFE gets lighter, transparent, and more elastic.

PCTFE is employed in cryogenic applications such as handling liquid oxygen and liquid nitrogen. PCTFE has relatively low melting point and is resistant to attack by most chemicals and oxidizing agents. Films made of PCTFE are used as protective layers against moisture. It includes moisture barrier in pharmaceutical blister packaging, water-vapor barrier for protecting phosphor coatings in electroluminescent lamps and protection of liquid crystal display panels.
Rapid expansion in the molding industry is a key factor driving the global PCTFE market. Demand for PCTFE in compression molding and extrusion molding has been rising. This is anticipated to propel the global PCTFE market. Increase in demand for PCTFE in industrial applications such as manufacture of chemical apparatus, process equipment, cryogenic applications, valve seats, seals, gaskets, sight glasses, laboratory equipment, and medical equipment is boosting the PCTFE market. Growth in demand for PCTFE in the refrigeration industry is considered a significant driver of the PCTFE market. Rise in usage of PCTFE in cryogenic applications such as handling of liquid oxygen and liquid nitrogen is augmenting the demand for PCTFE. PCTFE can retain its mechanical properties over a wide temperature range (down to almost absolute zero). Thus, it is widely used in refrigeration engineering. Recent advancements in the semiconductor industry is also propelling the global PCTFE market. PCTFE is used to protect sensitive electronic components due to its excellent electrical resistance and water repulsion properties. Rise in demand for PCTFE in the aerospace industry is also fuelling the market owing to its wide applications in machine components of aerostructures.

Based on application, the global PCTFE market can be segmented into chemical, industrial, aerospace, and semiconductor industries. In terms of grade, the PCTFE market can be bifurcated into pellet and granular. Pellet grade is generally employed for compression and extrusion molding. Granular grade is used for compression molding of thick walled products. The grade offers excellent stress crack resistance.
