High-performance semi-crystalline fluoropolymers
Halar® ECTFE is a partially fluorinated semi-crystalline polymer offering a unique combination of properties for highly demanding industries. It is widely used in anti-corrosion applications as a lining or in self-supporting constructions (piping). Its excellent fire resistance and chemical resistance properties make Halar® ECTFE a first-choice in wire and cable applications. Halar® ECTFE offers purity, surface smoothness, chemical resistance, and fire resistance which are key characteristics in the semiconductor and photovoltaic markets.
Why Halar® ECTFE?
- Outstanding chemical, permeation, and fire resistance
- Low permeability
- Excellent weatherability
- High purity and surface smoothness
- Excellent release properties
- Good abrasion resistance

Waterborne Coating System
This unique product can provide smooth, uniform and hole-free surfaces to give high-quality corrosion protection for complex components that are not suitable for electrostatic powder coating. This includes parts used in aggressive chemical processing environments with complex shapes and uneven surfaces, oversized vessels, interiors of pipes, tanks and containers.
Solvay’s Halar® ECTFE waterborne coating system delivers the same unique combination of properties as Halar® ECTFE powder coatings: long-lasting performance, excellent chemical and permeation resistance, exceptional surface properties and high purity. Composed of a high-adhesion primer and topcoat, this waterborne coating system also offers the opportunity to apply thinner coatings than competitive materials to help reduce cycle times. It can also be easily applied to a range of metallic substrates using standard liquid spray equipment. Additionally, Halar® ECTFE waterborne coatings are sustainable with ultra-low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and a Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP)-free formulation to address stringent regulatory requirements.
