- Halar® ECTFE
Halar® ECTFE, 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 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.
