Less dense than PTFE, ethylene tetrafluoroethylene or ETFE is a fluoropolymer known for its excellent resistance to impact and stress cracking. It is one of the engineering plastics for which DEMGY has a perfect command of transformation and machining.
ETFE: a fluorinated polymer with exceptional properties
ETFE is a fluoropolymer valued for its light transmission, gamma ray and UV resistance. It is also known for its excellent resistance to impact and cracking. It can withstand 400 times its weight. This thermoplastic is an excellent alternative to glass because it is very weather resistant and more economical. It is also lighter. It maintains good stability over a wide temperature range from 80°C to 155°C. It is recyclable and has a high chemical resistance.
Thanks to its mechanical properties, ETFE is very popular for the manufacture of injection-molded mechanical parts such as pumps, valves and fittings. It is also used in the chemical industry, as well as in the construction industry, especially in finishing, to manufacture gaskets and coatings. ETFE is commercially available under several trade names: Tefzel® from Chemours, Fluon® from Asahi Glass Company, Neoflon® ETFE from Daikin and Texlon® from Vector Foiltec.
DEMGY transforms and machines ETFE to your specifications
DEMGY is currently the preferred partner for the transformation and machining of ETFE. We also take care of your needs for semi-finished products and high performance parts in PCTFE, PTFE, PFA, PVDF, Polyimide, PEI, PSU, FEP, PES, PEEK, PA, POM, PPS and PAI.
Depending on their properties, we have the necessary skills and equipment to work with these engineering plastics: by molding, compression, extrusion, injection and flow. We can carry out all your projects, from the most usual to the most complex, and this, whether it is for a prototype or for mass production.
