ECTFE - Halar® Coatings
Halar® Coatings offer Peak performance plus affordability
ECTFE is a melt processable fluoropolymer, also known by the trade name Halar®.
The material’s chemical structure (a 1:1 alternating copolymer of ethylene and
chlorotrifluoroethylene) makes it useful in a wide variety of applications, especially
as a coating or lining.
ECTFE coatings offers excellent chemical resistance, good electrical
properties, a broad-use temperature range from cryogenic to 300°F (150°C),
and the ability to meet the requirements of UL-94 V-O vertical flame test in thicknesses
as low as .007" (7
mils). A tough material with excellent impact strength, ECTFE coatings maintain useful properties
on exposure to cobalt 60 radiation at dosages of 200 megarads. It is one of the best
fluoropolymers for abrasion resistance.
ECTFE coatings fit applications that must exceed the capabilities of PVDF for chemical and thermal resistance, yet must avoid the added cost of a fully fluorinated polymer.
