HALAR® ECTFE coating is a partially fluorinated semi-crystalline polymer offering a unique combination of mechanical properties, and thermal and chemical resistance.
HALAR® ECTFE coating, a copolymer of ethylene and chlorotrifluoroethylene, can bring advantages to the end user when compared to other fluoropolymers. It is a very versatile polymer, available in all forms to meet processing needs. HALAR® ECTFE coating offers excellent resistance to abrasion, harsh chemicals, and permeation. For those applications exceeding the capabilities of PVDF, HALAR® ECTFE can be evaluated before resorting to a fully fluorinated polymer, offering a compromise between the mechanical properties of a partially fluorinated plastic like PVDF and the chemical and thermal resistance which is typical of totally fluorinated polymers.
These characteristics can make HALAR® ECTFE coating the material of choice for several applications in the field of corrosion protection in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and microelectronics industries.
HALAR® ECTFE coating is a high purity fluoropolymer with a very smooth surface, which accounts for its extensive use in the semiconductor industry. HALAR® ECTFE meets the demands for fire safe, non-fire propagating plastics. HALAR® ECTFE powder coatings offer ease of processing with the ability to be applied in higher thicknesses when required.
