ETFE

temperature probe with etfe for chemical industry

ETFE

ETFE or Ethylene tetrafluoroethylene is a thermoplastic polymer based on fluorine with a high durability. It is designed to have a high resistance to corrosion and to have a stable behaviour in a wide range of temperatures, making it a material used for demanding environments. It also stands out as a substitute for glass, as it weighs 100 times less and it is more insulating and transparent, favouring the passage of light.

ETFE Properties

  • Tensile strength with wide temperature range (-185 to 150)
  • Weather resistance (UV light resistant)
  • Resistance to high temperatures
  • Chemical resistance
  • Non-stick properties

ETFE Applications

  • Coating of electrical wiring
  • Fibre optic coating
  • Nuclear industry
  • Aerospace industry
  • Glass substitute, tensile structures in architecture

Some of the most used ETFE coatings are DuPont's Tefzel or Daikin's Neoflon ETFE.
