What is ETFE Coating?
Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE) or Tefzel® Coating is also a fluorocarbon based polymer, a kind of plastic. ETFE is a thermoplastic copolymer that is derived from the polymerization of Ethylene and Tetrafluoroethylene monomers. This resin is extremely tough and abrasion resistance. It was designed to have high corrosion resistance, low coefficient of friction and strength over a wide temperature range. In addition to this it has a high melting temperature and does not emit toxic fumes when ignited.
ETFE coating is a proven fluoropolymer in the chemical and petrochemical industries. ETFE is renowned for its unique properties and design versatility. It has the ability to solve the toughest material problems of industrial equipments and components.
ETFE coatings provide excellent resistance to attacks by chemicals and solvents that can cause rapid deterioration of other plastics. ETFE is inert to strong mineral acids, inorganic bases, halogens and metal salt solutions.
In addition to this, ETFE coatings will have excellent mechanical strength, stiffness and abrasion resistance. It will be an ideal in such applications where abrasive slurries accelerate wear and degradation of alternative materials.
We offer ETFE Coating in two variants, (1) Regular ETFE (TEFZEL) Coating which looks Blue/Green Coloured and (2) Antistatic ETFE Coating which is Black Coloured.
