LONDON, Aug. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- `Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene is a copolymer of hexafluoropropylene (HFP) and tetrafluoroethylene (TFE) and is a melt-processable fluoropolymer. Being very similar in composition to PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene is bestowed with the beneficial properties of low friction and non-reactivity that are hallmarks of PTFE. The only exception is that Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene is softer than PTFE and has a lower melting point of 260°C, in addition to being highly transparent and resistant to sunlight.
Global demand for fluoropolymers has been witnessing considerable growth and as major worldwide economies are on the path to recovery, the need for specialty, melt-processable grades such as Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene has also been growing rapidly. This polymer is finding extensive use in areas such as wire and cable, photovoltaic (PV), aerospace and automotive markets.
