Fluon® Product Lineup
Fluon®ETFE is a thermoplastic fluoropolymer developed by AGC.
It is a copolymer comprised of of tetrafluoroethylene (C2F4) and ethylene (C2H4).
Fluon®ETFE is a high performance fluoropolymer that has chemical resistance and electrical properties comparable to typical fluoropolymers, such as PTFE, PFA and FEP but performs better than ECTFE or PVdF with its exceptional mechanical strength and easy processability.
PTFE accounts for 60-70% of the total demand for fluoropolymers.
Although discovered over 60 years ago, applications are still being explored in new fields because of its many excellent properties such as chemical inertness, lubricity and heat resistance.
The particular application will dictate the most appropriate grade to use.
Fluon®PFA is a copolymer of tetrafluoroethylene (C2F4) and perfluoroalkoxyethylene, which has excellent chemical, electrical, mechanical and surface properties.
PFA retains many inherent characteristics and similar properties to PTFE but can be processed using conventional thermoplastic techniques, such as extrusion, injection molding, blow molding, or electrostatic powder coating.
Fluon®PFA can be used within a wide temperature range from extremely low temperatures to 260°C maximum without losing its properties.
