ECTFE

Fluoropolymer with outstanding mechanical properties and dimensional stability

About ECTFE

two rods of ECTFE next to one another

ECTFE (ethylene chlorotrifluoroethylene) is stronger, stiffer, and more dimensionally stable than many other  fluoropolymer materials. It exhibits excellent electrical properties, a low coefficient of thermal expansion, and low moisture absorption. ECTFE (Halar®) has exceptionally smooth surfaces compared with other fluoropolymers, which make it an ideal choice for many high purity applications in the pharmaceutical and semiconductor industries.

Tech Tip – ECTFE has greater strength, stiffness, abrasion resistance, and creep resistance than many softer fluoropolymers such as PTFE.

Length, width, thickness, and diameter tolerances vary by size, by manufacturer, brand, and grade. Custom sizes available upon request.
