Understanding ETFE Industrial Coatings
September 24, 2014 | By Toefco | No Comments
ETFE coatings are sold under a variety of brand names, including Tefzel, Texlon, and Fluon. This type of coating is a thermoplastic copolymer, and one of its best qualities is the fact that it has a chemical inertness that’s similar to fluoropolymers like PTFE, although it also brings mechanical strength, resistance to abrasion, and stiffness along with chemical inertness.
The strength of ETFE is important in many applications, like those where constant physical impact or continual contact with abrasive materials is a concern. In situations like these, an ETFE coating is likely to last much longer than a standard fluoropolymer coating would. ETFE can be used continually from 150 degrees Fahrenheit all the way up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. This makes the material perfect for the chemical processing industry.
