The fluoropolymers offer plastics with chemical resistance, high and low temperature ranges, resistance to weathering, low friction properties, electrical and thermal insulation and slippery characteristics. Fluoropolymers can not be bonded by gluing or using solvent cement. All of the fluoropolymers will burn when exposed to flame, but they will not continue to burn when the flame is removed.
ECTFE (ethylene-chlorotrifluoroethylene) is a copolymer of ethylene and PCTFE. It is melt processible. It has excellent electrical insulating properties. At ambient temperatures its mechanical properties compare to those of nylon 6. It has excellent impact resistance at ambient and sub ambient temperatures. Its service range is -80 to +300°F. Halar
