Halar® Characteristics

This material is strong and highly impact-resistant. Halar® offers excellent electrical properties, low moisture absorption and temperature insensitivity. (Its use range spans from cryogenic to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.)

Virtually impervious to most common corrosive chemicals, Halar® also shows extremely low permeability to liquids, gases and vapors. This makes it a good choice for high-purity processing components for the chemical and semi-conductor industries.

Halar® is an ethylene-chlorotrifluoroethylene (ECTFE) thermoplastic material.
