EFTE (Tefzel®)

Ethylene tetrafluoroethylene, ETFE, a fluorine based plastic, was designed to have high corrosion resistance and strength over a wide temperature range. ETFE is a polymer and its source-based name is poly(ethene-co-tetrafluoroethene). ETFE has a relatively high melting temperature, excellent chemical, electrical and high energy radiation resistance properties. ETFE (Tefzel®) resin combines superior mechanical toughness with an outstanding chemical inertness that approaches that of PTFE (Teflon®) fluoroplastic resins.
