ETFE Sold out for 2011

Many of you have heard about the constrained supply of Fluoropolymers around the globe.  The ETFE  shortage was not created because of a global shortage on materials, but as a direct result of the horrific Tsunami in Japan.

It is with regret that I am required to inform you that the ETFE products that we distribute for DuPont are sold out for the rest of 2011.  These products include:
  • 532-6200
  • 532-6210
  • 532-6118
  • 532-6310
  • 532-6314
  • 532-6405
  • 532-6412

If you have open orders with Intech, they will be filled.  We cannot accept any additional orders in 2011.  If supply of these products loosens up and we are allocated more material we will notify you at this time.

It is very important that you understand that this does not indicate problems for any of our other 100 coatings in PFA, FEP, and PTFE forms.  These products supply chains are very strong and we do not anticipate any supply issues with these products moving forward.

We encourage anyone with needs for ETFE to call us about potential replacement coatings for any of your ongoing jobs.

Our apologies for this difficult news.
