The "chemical resistance" and "non-adhesiveness" of fluoropolymers are utilized in various parts in food manufacturing equipment.
Properties such as the heat-resistance, chemical resistance, and non-adhesiveness of Fluon® ETFE are beneficial for use in food manufacturing related parts.
Fluon®ETFE is a tough 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 because of its improved mechanical strength and moldability.
Properties such as the heat resistance, chemical resistance, and non-adhesiveness of Fluon® PTFE are beneficial for use in food manufacturing related parts.
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 due to its numerous desired properties such as inertness, lubricity and heat resistance.
