Nafion™ membranes are often used to separate the anodes from the cathodes in electrolysis reactors or fuel cells. The thickness of the cation exchange membrane makes Nafion™ 212 ideal for hydrogen fuel cells. Nafion™ 212 is 50.8 µm thick.
Chemours® (formerly DuPont®) Nafion™ NR212 membranes are unreinforced films based on chemically stabilized perfluorosulfonic acid / PTFE copolymer in its acid form (H+). The physical properties of the chemically stabilized membranes remain the same. Compared to the unstabilized polymer, these have a significantly lower fluoride ion release. That means improved chemical resistance. Nafion™ PFSA membranes are widely used for proton exchange membranes (PEM) in fuel cells and electrolysis reactors. The membrane acts as a separator and solid electrolyte in a large number of electrochemical cells. Typically, such cells require that the membrane selectively transport cations across the cell boundary. The polymer is chemically resistant and durable.
