What is ECTFE Coating?

ECTFE (Etheylenechlorotrifluoroethylene) is a partially fluorinated semi-crystalline polymer developed predominantly for chemical resistance applications.

ECTFE is sold under various brand names, Halar® being the most popular. Fluorocarbon Surface Technologies provides these coatings as part of our F-LON® 7000 range. Variations are available, such as static dissipative and FDA compliant coatings.

These coatings offer excellent chemical, corrosion and abrasion resistance over a wide temperature range, typically -40°C to +150°C – (for chemical applications with lower or higher temperatures ask about our PFA coatings)

ECTFE coatings, which are melt-processable hence low in porosity, are typically applied between 500 to 1000 microns thickness.

Key features are:

  • Excellent Chemical resistance
  • Excellent resistance to ozone, sunlight and weather
  • Low dielectric constant and high dielectric strength
  • Radiation resistance
  • Surface smoothness
  • Flame Resistance

Typical applications include:

  • Chemical Process Vessels
  • Centrifuges
  • Pharmaceutical Process Equipment
  • Downhole Applications
  • Medical Laboratory Equipment 
  • Level Sensors & Thermowells
  • Valve Bodies in corrosive environments
  • Flame Arrestors & Shock Guard Shells
  • Pipeline Clampsets & Seal Rings
