TEFLONTM PTFE - POLYTETRAFLUOROETHYLENE
Classic fluoropolymer PTFE can only be put into the desired form with methods such as pressing, vitrification and mechanical reworking. The evolution of fluoropolymers did justice to this disadvantage. Melt processing was achieved by shortening the main chain and introducing side chains. An example of this is FEP.
TEFLONTM FEP - FLUOROETHYLENPROPYLENE
FEP is a fully-fluorinated copolymer suitable for permanent use at up to 205°C with the best chemical resistance and dielectric stability. Today, FEP is used frequently in the wire and cable industry via extrusion processes and for transfer pressing for chemical applications. In the injection-molding sector, FEP has had less success due to its relatively large shearing sensitivity.
TEFLONTM PFA - PERFLUOROALKOXY
Perfluoralkoxylalkane is a high fluor-containing plastic, a further enhancement of the widespread vitrification material PTFE. In contrast to PTFE, PFA can be processed thermo-plastically. PFA has a low rigidity and hardness, it is resistant to nearly all chemicals, and it demonstrates great temperature stability and is flame-resistant. PFA has a low friction value, it behaves largely inertly, has high sliding abrasion and an extremely low adhesion.
TEFZELTM ETFE - ETHYLENE-TETRAFLUORETHYLENE-COPOLYMER
Ethylene-Tetrafluorethylene is a fluorinated copolymer consisting of the monomers tetrafluorethylene and ethylene. ETFE is a PTFE derivative. Films of this plastic are lightweight and they are very light and UV-permeable. Due to its resistance to many aggressive chemicals (e.g. acids, aromatic hydrocarbons), ETFE also serves as a coating material for chemical devices and containers. Due to its low dielectric constant, it is well-suited as insulation material in electrical technology.
