By TIOL News Service
NEW DELHI, JAN 28, 2021: DAIKIN America yesterday filed an anti-dumping petition against imports of Granular Polytetrafluoroethylene Resin (PTFE) from India and Russia. Investigation has been initiated against Gujarat Fluorochemicals Ltd, GMM Coatings, Fluorokraft, DuFlon Industries and many more which would have to defend their alleged case of huge dumping margins.
PTFE is covered by the scope of the investigation whether filled or unfilled, and whether or not containing co-polymer, additives, pigments, or other materials. Also included is PTFE wet raw polymer.
The product covered by this investigation does not include dispersion or coagulated dispersion (also known as fine powder) PTFE.
PTFE further processed into micropowder, having particle size typically ranging from 1 to 25 microns, and a melt-flow rate no less than 0.1 gram/10 minutes, is excluded from the scope of this investigation.
