Fluon® ETFE Resins

FluonETFEFluonETFEMelt processable copolymers composed of tetrafluoroethylene and ethylene, Fluon® ETFE Resins offer superior physical toughness and adaptability to meet the ranging needs of simple, high-quality, complicated and even high-performance products. The fluoropolymers maintain stable mechanical and electrical properties while exposed to a wide temperature range from -200 °C to +150 °C. Superior  tensile elongation and strength ensure no breakage by impact at room temperature. They are even resistant to low-temperature impact down to at least -80 °C. Tolerant to almost all chemical agents and solvents, these nonflammable resins conform to UL Standard 94V-0. ETFE resins are also resistant to ultraviolet light, making them suitable for outdoor use. A 16,000-hour accelerated weathering test (comparable to 30 years’ exposure) produced almost no signs of film deterioration. Available in pellet or powder form, ETFE resins can be molded by extrusion molding, injection molding, blow molding and electrostatic coating. Fluon ETFE resin compounds are also available in a variety of color masterbatch concentrates, custom reinforcements or conductivity levels.

Modified ethylene/tetrafluoroethylene polymers, Low Melting ETFE resins have a melting point lower by 30 °C to 40 °C than conventional ETFE materials, enabling processing over a wider temperature range with remarkably improved processability. Resins have higher flexibility and mechanical strength and can withstand flex of over 100,000 times. These low melting fluoropolymers also possess improved optical clarity and a higher limiting oxygen index (40% versus 31%). Using conventional extrusion and injection molding techniques, LM-ETFE resins can be processed at a wider range of temperatures due to their improved thermal stability and lower melting point. Rotomolding, rotolining and adhesive grades are also available.
