Tefzel® is Back and Better Than Ever

Remember Tefzel®?  Contrary to some beliefs, the Tefzel® product line was never discontinued, just referred to as ETFE (Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene). In 2013, DuPont expanded the product line by developing a powder primer (532-6405) and a high-build clear topcoat (532-6410) to compliment the existing Tefzel® products.  The new high build product can be applied to film builds of 80-100 mils, depending upon the job.  ETFE is a rugged thermoplastic with an outstanding balance of properties.  These new coatings are more chemically resistant at higher operating temperatures.  Along with having high thermal stability, when compared to the competition, Tefzel® is extremely tough and electrially insulative with superior adhesion. Tefzel®’s characteristics make the coating an ideal candidate in markets such as chemical processing, semiconductor, pharmaceutical, and food processing.  

So if you come across a specification that requires Tefzel®, feel confident that the product is available and with new formulations that now allow for more options.  When selecting a coating that will provide superior chemical resistance and durability, Tefzel® is the product that coaters and specifiers have depended upon for decades.  In the coating marketplace, there are many solutions you can choose, but Tefzel® is the name you can trust with DuPont’s continued commitment to developing the best products in the market.
