NEOFLON ETFE EP-Series
NEOFLON ETFE EP-Series has the best mechanical strength and radiation-resistance among fluoropolymers. It is melt moldable and exhibits excellent processability and mechanical properties with great thermal, chemical and electrical properties. It is used for applications that require both mechanical strength and thermal, chemical, and electrical properties.
- A copolymer of tetrafluoroethylene and ethylene consisting of carbon, hydrogen and fluorine atoms.
- It has the highest mechanical strength among fluororesins.
- It has the best radiation resistance among fluororesins.
- Flame retardant (limiting O2 index 31 vol% EP-500 system, 50 vol% EP-600 system).
- It is not attacked by acids, alkalis or organic solvents.
- This molecular structure has a low polarity and exhibits a low dielectric constant and a low dielectric loss tangent.
- Melt molding methods are available such as extrusion molding, injection molding and compression molding.
