Teflon™ FEP resins are often used within the manufacturing of cables, tubing and piping which require excellent chemical and stress resistance, along with many other characteristics offered by PTFE products. They have a melt viscosity low enough to be processed by extrusion (conventional and melt) and by compression,transfer and injection or blow molding processes.
Chemours™ is committed to key values which include integrity, strong customer relationships and environmental responsibility. Chemours™ employs just over 8,000 individuals across more than 130 countries. With shareholders remaining the same as DuPont™, the new company has a strong chemical background to expand from and grow. Chemours™ is focused on three main technologies: Fluoroproducts such as Teflon™ (PTFE, PFA, FEP) and Tefzel™ (ETFE) products, Chemical Solutions and Titanium Dioxide based pigments and solutions.
The Industrial division of Alfa Chemicals can help you select the best speciality chemical additives for your development projects in the UK, Ireland and Nordic regions.
General purpose grade which is used in multiple applications such as wire coating for insulation. Provides products with excellent dielectric properties, excellent heat, chemical and weather resistance, non-stick characteristics, low flammability, very good toughness and flexibility.
High productivity grade, used in multiple applications. Designed for the extrusion of thin wall, small diameter wire coating or within the production of intricate parts by injection moulding. Can be extruded at higher extrusion line speeds than the general grade, providing products with excellent dielectric properties, heat, chemical and weather resistance, non-stick characteristics and low flammability.
Melt-processible fluoroplastic resin used to improve processing rates within the production of small diameter, thin wall wire and cable insulations due to its high melt strength and thermal stability . Provides properties commonly associated with fluoropolymers such as chemical inertness, exceptional dielectric properties, non-stick characteristics, increased toughness and flexibility.
Used in applications which demand a high degree of stress crack resistance. Provides excellent dielectric properties, excellent heat, chemical and weather resistance, non-stick characteristics, low flammability, very good toughness and flexibility. Offers higher processing speeds compared to many other FEP grades with similar high levels of stress due to being an intermediate molecular weight resin.
