Ethylene Chlorotrifluoroethylene (ECTFE) Copolymer Market: Overview
Ethylene chlorotrifluoroethylene (ECTFE) is a fluoropolymer produced by the polymerization of two monomers: ethylene and chlorotrifluoroethylene. Owing to presence of strong hydrogen bonds in it, ECTFE offers resistance to chemicals as well as thermal and mechanical properties such as melt processability and fire retardance. Being partially fluorinated semi-crystalline polymer, ECTFE exhibits resistance to chemicals and corrosion over a wide range of temperature from −50°C to 150°C. ECTFE has high resistivity and low dielectric constant, which makes it suitable for use in electric insulation.
