Halar® ECTFE is a partially fluorinated semi-crystalline polymer offering a unique combination of properties for highly demanding industries.

Known for its excellent chemical and permeation resistance, adherence to metal, good thermal properties, and low thermal expansion coefficient, to name a few properties, coupled with its ease of processing, this unique family of fluoropolymers is well-suited to perform as anti-corrosion coatings and linings in highly corrosive environments, ultra-pure water tanks, exhaust ducts, as anti-stick coatings for rollers used in the pulp and paper industry, and a range of other demanding applications.

Halar® ECTFE comes in pellet form for use in extrusion, injection molding, compression molding, and melt blown and spun fiber technologies. Powder grades are used in rotolining and rotomolding and also are applied by electrostatic spray or fluid-bed coating methods.

Solef® PVDF is a partially fluorinated melt processable polymer that offers a balance between mechanical properties and chemical resistance.

Known for its chemical and fire resistance, high temperature use, resistance to UV and gamma radiation, purity, and electrical and optical properties, Solef® PVDF can be applied towards a wide range of demanding uses such as wire and telecommunication cable, corrosion protecting linings and coatings, plumbing fittings and components, including the stringent requirements of ultra-pure water piping systems, oil and gas umbilicals, Li-ion batteries, and water treatment membranes.

Depending on the grade and processing method, Solef® PVDF comes in both pellet and powder forms.

Both Halar® and Solef® come in several package types and weights, including 5kg and 10kg developmental sizes (availability varies by grade) and many grades are held in-stock.
