Halar ECTFE, is a semi-crystalline melt processable partially fluorinated polymer. It is available in different grades that are specifically designed for electrostatic powder coating.
Halar ECTFE is a partially fluorinated semi-crystalline polymer offering a unique combination of properties for highly demanding industries. It is widely used in anti-corrosion applications as a lining or in self-supporting constructions (piping). Its excellent fire resistance properties and chemical resistance make Halar ECTFE a first choice in wire and cable applications. Halar ECTFE offers purity, surface smoothness, chemical resistance and fire resistance which are key characteristics in the semiconductor and photovoltaic markets.
Halar ECTFE is a melt-processable fluoropolymer that can be handled by conventional techniques, such as, extrusion, compression molding, injection molding and rotational molding and lining.
Halar ECTFE is particularly suitable for use as a coating material in protection and anti-corrosion applications thanks to its unique combination of properties.
Very good chemical and thermal resistance
Optimum permeation resistance
Outstanding flame resistance
Very good surface characteristics
Halar ECTFE is available in different grades that are specifically designed for electrostatic powder coating, fluidized bed coating, or both.
Electrostatic Powder Coating
Generally the procedure involves substrate preparation, spray coating, baking and cooling. Several passes maybe required to obtain the desired Halar ECTFE load and build up coating thickness.
Fluidized Bed Coating
Generally preheated items can be coated by dipping directly into the fluidized powder followed by baking. The dipping and baking operation can be repeated to achieve multiple coats and build up the desired coating thickness.
Markets and Applications
Typical applications served by Halar ECTFE include those in contact with highly corrosive or ultrapure chemicals such as strong inorganic bases and strong mineral and oxidizing acids including:
Semiconductor chemical storage tanks and ductwork
