Materials for the challenge of Building and Construction applications

In the building & construction industries, fluoropolymers play an indispensable role due to their excellent weather resistance, flame resistance, friction performance, thermal stability and other characteristics, such as roofing materials, architectural fabrics, protective coatings and decorative coatings, etc.

With the acceleration of urbanization, investment in infrastructure such as office buildings, housing, and transportation networks continues to increase, and the building & construction industries are facing the challenge of balance between functionality and cost-effectiveness. At the same time, the building & construction industries have extremely high requirements for material properties, such as weather resistance, durability, safety, and easy maintenance. Alfa Chemistry Fluoropolymers is committed to improving and maintaining the value of urban infrastructure and contributing to the creation of a safe and comfortable society.
