Fluon® ETFE - Functions and Features
Fluon® ETFE Functions and Features
Extrusion, injection molding and powder coating using ETFE are generally possible, similar to general thermoplastic resins, leaving the inherent characteristics of fluoropolymers unchanged. Filming, heat-sealing, composition with rubber and various secondary processes are also possible.
Good performance over a wide temperature range
Stable mechanical electrical properties are maintained over a wide range of temperatures, -200 - +180°C. Continuous service at 150°C is possible.
Excellent chemical resistance
It exhibits outstanding chemical resistance to nearly all chemical substances, including strongly-acidic and strongly-alkaline substances.
Exceptionally good electrical properties
Fluon®ETFE is an excellent insulator exhibiting high dielectric strength as a thin film. A low dielectric constant and dielectric tangent are demonstrated over a wide range of frequencies.
Flammability: UL-94V-0. Tasteless, odorless, non-toxic and suitable for almost any purpose.
Weatherability lasting over 10 years
Deflects ultraviolet-rays (UV) and does virtually not deteriorate from ordinary exposure over 10 years.
Excellent Low Surface Energy
Good surface properties, e.g. low coefficient of friction, anti-adhesion and water/oil repellency allow for excellent flow of substances.
