Resource download description: 

Fluoropolymers are amorphous or semicrystalline fluorine-containing polymers. Due to the very strong, polar bond of carbon and fluorine, fluoropolymers have low surface energy, a low coefficient of friction, and are water repellent. In addition, these materials have a high chemical resistance, have excellent dielectric properties, and are biocompatible. They are used in medical applications ranging from flexible tubing to catheters.
