Biesterfeld Spezialchemie is expanding its partnership with Belgian manufacturer Solvay Fluor for organic fluorinated intermediates. With immediate effect, the distribution rights for the CF3 product portfolio will be extended to include Trifluoroacetic acid ethyl ester (TFAEt), Trifluoroacetic acid methyl ester (TFAMe) and Trifluoroacetone (TFK).
