Fluon® LM-ETFE is a thermoplastic fluoropolymer with a lower melting point.
Fluon® LM-ETFE Functions and Features
Melting point is as low as 225°C. It has lower viscosity over 240°C, so processing is possible at temperature 50°C lower than conventional ETFE.
Excellent heat resistance
It has a higher heat resistance than standard ETFE resin, so it is usable over a wide temperature range from -200°C to 180°C. Continuous usage at 180°C is also possible. It also maintains stable electrical properties.
Excellent chemical resistance
It has excellent resistance to almost all chemical agents and solvents.
Fluon® LM-ETFE Usage
The characteristics of Fluon® LM-ETFE provide the superior solution, in terms of cost reduction compared to the use of other fluoropolymers, or improved performance if replacing conventional materials.
Fluon® LM-ETFE Usage
The following is an introduction of the major uses of Fluon® LM-ETFE.
Wire and cable
Due to its excellent electrical and insulating properties in a wide range of temperatures, and superior mechanical strength, especially flex life, Fluon® LM-ETFE is suitable for wire and cable coatings.
Tubing made from Fluon® LM-ETFE is suitable for the transportation of high viscosity liquid, due to its non-adhesiveness and smoothness of internal molded surfaces.
Linings and coatings
Fluon® LM-ETFE, when used as an inner layer lining or coating, is stable against most chemicals (acids, alkali, solvent, etc.) and remains effective when subjected to an increase or decrease in temperature or pressure.
