ECTFE MATERIALS (Ethylene Chlorotrifluoroethylene)

Chemical resistance was incorporated into ECTFE (ethylene chlorotrifluoroethylene) for heavy-duty corrosion applications. It’s a semi-crystalline partly fluorinated polymer (fluoropolymer) that may be treated in the melt. Chemically, it’s an ethylene-chlorotrifluoroethylene copolymer.

Many other fluoropolymer polymers are weaker, stiffer, and less dimensionally stable than ECTFE (ethylene chlorotrifluoroethylene). It has good electrical characteristics as well as a low coefficient of thermal expansion and minimal moisture absorption. When compared to other fluoropolymers, ECTFE (Halar®) has extraordinarily smooth surfaces, making it an excellent choice for many high-purity applications in the pharmaceutical and semiconductor sectors. Many softer fluoropolymers, such as PTFE, have lower strength, stiffness, abrasion resistance, and creep resistance than ECTFE.

ECTFE IS WIDELY USED FOR:

  • Linings for tanks, vessels, and reactors
  • Semiconductor and pharmaceutical chemical storage tanks and ductwork
  • Piping systems / fluid processing components
  • Centrifuges
  • Agitators
  • Exhaust hoods
  • Filters
  • Electroplating equipment

PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Stronger and stiffer than many other fluoropolymers with high impact strength
  • Excellent electrical properties
  • Abrasion, chemical, and weather resistant
  • Exceptionally smooth surfaces
  • Low levels of metallic and organic extractables
  • Excellent fire resistance

COMMON BRANDS:

  • Halar®
