FEP – Fluorinated Ethylene Propylen

New Technology Plastics distributes a wide selection of FEP materials in sheet, rod, and tube. FEP Polymer Overview The development of PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) was a significant breakthrough in polymer science. The special processing requirements of PTFE led researchers to develop a melt–processable version of PTFE resulting in FEP. This new resin was compatible with existing processing methods and equipment. Melt processability also allowed for long continuous extrusions of FEP in applications such as wire and cable wrapping.

While like PTFE in many of its properties, FEP has its own preferred attributes. It has a slightly higher coefficient of friction, lower continuous service temperature, and is more transparent than PTFE. FEP also offers lower gas and vapor permeability properties and excellent UV resistance. FEP’s expanded attributes make it ideal for a diverse range of applications from environmental monitoring equipment to medical devices.
