Halar Linings

Halar® ECTFE is a partially fluorinated semi-crystalline polymer with a unique set of properties. Widely used for anti-corrosion applications, it has excellent fire resistance and chemical resistance properties. Halar® ECTFE offers purity, surface smoothness, chemical resistance, and fire resistance which are key characteristics.

Consider Halar® ECTFE for your liner material if you’re looking for a cost-effective lining that can protect your tanks from acids and caustics. Halar® ECTFE offers:

  • Outstanding chemical, permeation, and fire resistance
  • Low permeability
  • Excellent weatherability
  • High purity and surface smoothness
  • Excellent release properties
  • Good abrasion resistance

Because of its chemical structure, Halar® ECTFE is chemical resistant and has a high thermal rating. It also has excellent mechanical properties due to its hydrogen bonding.

Chemical Resistance

Halar® ECTFE is superior to plastic and FRP duct because of its improved safety and corrosion resistance. It can reduce or eliminate salt deposit and debris build-up, which reduces airflow.

Extensive testing has also shown incredibly low levels of metallic and organic extractable, making it ideal for high purity systems in the semiconductor, biotech, and pharmaceutical industries. Halar® ECTFE also exhibits very low fluoride ion leach out.
