Halar (ECTFE) Coating

WHAT IS HALAR® FLUOROPOLYMER?

HALAR® is essentially a 1:1 alternating copolymer of ethylene and chlorotrifluoro-ethylene (CTFE). By weight, it contains about 80% CTFE, one of the most chemically resistant materials that can be used to make a polymer.

Though CTFE homopolymers are excellent materials, they are difficult to fabricate into complex shapes. By copolymerizing CTFE with ethylene, HALAR® combines the chemical resistance of CTFE-based materials with easy processability.

  

WHY IS HALAR® USED FOR CHEMICAL APPLICATIONS?

HALAR® is one of the most chemically resistant polymers available today.

It possesses the following characteristics:

  1. Suitable for the most demanding applications:
  2. Mechanically tough with excellent abrasion and impact resistance
  3. Continuous use to 300º F in many applications Excellent release properties
  4. Extremely smooth surface
  5. Dimensionally stable
  6. Low cold flow
