General Information ETFE, FEP und PFA

ETFE - Ethylentetrafluorethylen

ETFE has got excellent mechanical characteristics, an elevated hardness and tensile strength are combined with chemical resistance and electric and thermal characteristics of other fluoro-plastics with especially high demands as for example on:

  • high chemical and solvent resistance
  • cold and heat resistanceelevated tensile strength and pressure resistance
  • good electric and insulation characteristics with low dielectric values almost independent on frequency
  • operating temperature from approx. -90°C up to +135 °C

 

FEP - Fluorethylenpropylen

This material belongs to the fusible fluoroplastics and can be extruded. It has got a bigger friction coefficient and a lower permanent operating temperature than PTFE. FEP offers the following characteristics:

  • excellent temperature resistance
  • deep temperature flexibility
  • very good resistance against oils and chemicals
  • good electric insulating characteristics with almost frequency independent dielectric characteristics
  • operating temperature from approx. -90°C up to +180°C

 

PFA - Perfluoralkoxy

This fluoroplastic material has got a good chemical resistance, a broad application temperature range as well as a very good resistance against ageing and weather conditions. Furthermore, it shows a low friction resistance and a good electrical insulation with especially high demands as for example on:

  • high demands on chemical and solvent resistance
  • high degree of resistance
  • excellent temperature resistance and deep temperature flexibility
  • good electrical insulation characteristics with low almost frequency independent dielectric characteristics
  • operating temperature from approx. -90°C up to +250°C (short term +260°C)
