Nafion membrane may be used in the fabrication of electrodes by dry plasma.As a proton exchange membrane Nafion has been the focus of considerable efforts to develop improved fuel cells.
Nafion perfluorinated membrane (Nafion 117) is a composite material that can be used as an electrolytic ion-exchange membrane for the fabrication of fuel cells.
Nafion is a perfluorinated ion-exchange membrane which has a wide variety of commercial uses. The acidic (hydrogen ion) form and derivatives are solid, superacid catalysts useful in a wide variety of synthetic applications.

Darkening/browning is common for pieces stored in a general room environment for an extended period of time (several months), due to organics pick-up. Verify product is kept sealed during storage.
· Keep pieces sealed and protected from general exposure will reduce the effect. Recommend long term storage in air-tight bags.
· Discoloration does not affect performance and can be removed by soaking in dilute nitric acid.
Packaged in heat-sealed foil bag in stay-flat mailers

Storage and Stability

Storage is to keep sealed in bag. After opening, storage of more than 1 year could cause yellow coloring of the membrane. Simple 1/2 hr soak in De ionized water is all that is needed prior to most uses.
