Halar®

Halar® ECTFE, a copolymer of ethylene and chlorotrifluoroethanol, is a partially fluorinated and semi-crystalline processed polymer, which is marketed by Solvay.

It is available in different grades specifically designed as an electrostatic powder coating.

It is also particularly suitable for being used as a coating material and corrosion protection thanks to its unique combination of properties:

-    Very good chemical and thermal resistance
-    Optimum permeability resistance
-    Excellent flame resistance
-    Very good surface characteristics
-    Surface softness
-    Purity

The primary applications of Halar or ECTFE coatings are chemical reactors, storage tanks of chemicals, piping systems, centrifuges, agitators, hoods, filters and electroplating equipment.
