- Water-based formulations
Torlon® AI (polyamide-imide) – thermoplastic, amorphous polymers available in water-soluble versions that possess exceptional mechanical, thermal, chemical resistance as well as wear-resistant properties. They are inherently non-flammable, have outstanding electrical properties, and possess enormous temperature stability from cryogenic to 300°C and some grades are FDA compliant.
Veradel® polyethersulfone (PESU) – is a water-dispersible polymer powder that is FDA-compliant with excellent quality and product consistency. It has an HDT of 204°C, is inherently non-flammable, optically clear and provides good chemical resistance to strong acids and bases. Its range of molecular weights and low viscosity allows for easier processing. It offers good adhesive properties to a wide range of metals, including stainless steel and aluminum.
KetaSpire® PEEK (polyetheretherketone) – is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic that is FDA-compliant and has outstanding chemical resistance to organics, acids, bases and steam/hot water. It is an ideal material for applications that are exposed to extreme conditions such as wear, abrasion and high temperatures up to 315°C. It is available in both powders and fine powders.
Radel® PPSU (polyphenylsulfone) – super-tough transparent polymer that is FDA compliant with an HDT of 405°F (207°C), excellent chemical resistance and the unique ability to be steam sterilized without significant loss of properties.
Xydar® LCP (liquid crystal polymer) – high-temperature, liquid crystal polymer with an HDT of 570°F (300°C), and extremely high chemical resistance when applied as a thermally-sprayed powder coating.
High Purity Coatings
Clean Room process equipment must be constructed of high purity, chemically-inert and fire-safe materials.
Hyflon® PFA/MFA® powders are high purity products that can be used for anti-stick coatings for use in pharmaceutical and high purity process equipment where good release properties and high purity and excellent temperature and chemical resistance are required.
Halar® ECTFE is used as a lining and coating for ultrapure water systems in the pharmaceutical and chemical industry.
Halar® ECTFE has complete chemical compatibility handling the full pH range and is ideal for alkaline chemistries.
Moreover, it meets the demands for fire-safe, non-fire propagating plastics.
It is approved and listed to the FM Global 4910 Clean Room Fire Safety Protocol and has been tested and meets the UL 2360 Fire-Safe Clean Room Materials Standard.
Exhaust Duct Coatings
Halar® ECTFE fluoropolymer coatings provide outstanding properties:
- Chemical resistance
- Barrier properties
- Outperform plastic and FRP duct with improved safety and corrosion resistance
- Reduction or elimination of the buildup of salt deposits and debris that can reduce airflow approved by Factory Mutual for use in fume and smoke exhaust systems, without sprinklers.
Halar® ECTFE coated stainless steel exhaust duct systems are designed to handle a wide range of corrosive exhaust streams found in a variety of industrial applications, including clean rooms.
