The benefits of Halar® ECTFE coatings

This is a partially fluorinated semi-crystalline polymer coating, i.e. a copolymer of ethylene and chlorotrifluoroethylene, particularly suitable for corrosion protection.

Halar® ECTFE coating creates a nonporous surface and ensures a very strong barrier against oxygen, carbon monoxide, chlorine gas and hydrochloric acid.

It is also resistant to the most aggressive chemicals, including acids, chlorine, and caustic soda, sometimes able to pierce even the highest performing steels. That’s why Halar® ECTFE coatings are mainly used in the chemical industry, e.g. for storage and reagent tanks, accessories, agitators and test probes.

Among plasticsECTFE is considered one of the best fluoropolymers on the market, in terms of waterproofing and abrasion resistance.

Halar® ECTFE is also widely used where a high degree of electrical insulation and high-temperature resistance are required.

Thanks to its great variety of properties, this coating is able to significantly increase the performance of industrial machinery and reduce the related risks of wear and replacement.

Argos ST offers coatings in Halar® ECTFE on behalf of third parties, with certification in accordance with the UNI EN ISO 9001:2015 standard.
