Fluon® ETFE Resins
Fluon® ETFE resins are melt-processable copolymers composed of ethylene and tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE). Their superior physical toughness and resistance to chemicals, UV and extreme temperatures make these resins ideally suited for a wide range of high performance products and components such as industrial wiring and electronics.
ETFE resins are also resistant to ultraviolet light, so they are ideal for outdoor use. A 16,000-hour accelerated weathering test (comparable to 30 years’ exposure) produced almost no signs of film deterioration.
ETFE resins are available in pellet or powder form for processing using the following methods:
- Extrusion molding
- Injection molding
- Blow molding
- Electrostatic coating
ETFE resin compounds are also available in a variety of color masterbatch concentrates, custom reinforcements or conductivity levels.
Fluon® LM-ETFE resins are modified to provide a 30 °C to 40 °C lower melting point than conventional ETFE resins. The wider temperature range allows for improved processability, flexibility and strength.
These low melting fluoropolymer resins are processable by conventional extrusion and injection molding techniques. They are also available in rotomolding, rotolining and adhesive grades.
