Tefzel™ ETFE (ethylenetetrafluoroethylene) is a melt processable fluoroplastic resin. Tefzel™ ETFE fluoroplastics are ideal for wire coating and molding a wide variety of end use articles and components.
Tefzel™ ETFE has a wide service temperature range with characteristics of other fluoroplastic resins; low flammability, chemical resistance, exceptional dielectric and electrical properties, superior mechanical toughness, abrasion resistance and environmental robustness.
Tefzel™ ETFE fluoroplastic grades have a service temperature range of 150°C- 200°C. In addition to these upper service temperature ranges, Tefzel™ ETFE also retains its useful properties at cryogenic temperatures.
While Tefzel™ ETFE can be fabricated into solid shapes and molded articles it is best known as an industry leading product line in the wire and cable industry where it is used for wire coating and cable jacket fabrication. Tefzel™ ETFE offers wire and cable OEMs a high performance fluoroplastic material with excellent electrical properties, ease of processing and extreme toughness.
The Tefzel™ ETFE product line is one the broadest in the industry. With Melt Flow Rates (MFR) from 2 to 30, and a wide range of application specific grades, Tefzel™ ETFE is uniquely positioned to offer exceptional performance in both general purpose, thin wall and wire and cable constructions.
Special Tefzel™ ETFE grades are also available for special applications involving rotational molding and where static dissipative or adhesion properties are required.
