Besides PTFE, the most common and best known fluoropolymer. Polyfluor is a FEP and PTFE specialist in the Benelux. With 40 years of experience and an unending desire to meet the needs of the current, evolving market, we ensure that we have a solution for every need. FTPE and FEP are similar; however, main differences are the natural colour, FEP is clear transparent, and the lower melting temperature. The clearness provides distinctive advantages in applications whereas the low melting temperature makes FEP a very good material for protective sleeves like heat shrinkable tubing and cable harnesses. Developments are ongoing with this fluorplastic, which is why we are continuously working on new solutions that match the current market even better. We have a specific solution for every need and we are passionate to take on the challenges of today ánd tomorrow. 

What is FEP (Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene)?

Due to the advantageous properties of this plastic, FEP is widely used in critical applications in various industries. The big advantages it has over PTFE is its lower melting temperature, greater flexibility, and its transparent colour is also preferred in certain applications.

Advantageous Material Properties

Polyfluor offers products that have a very low dielectric constant. As a result, the material has a good insulating effect. Further, this transparent plastic is chemically inert and has very low friction. FEP from Polyfluor also has the following properties:

  • Lower melting temperature than PTFE
  • More flexible than PTFE
  • Transparent/clear
  • Low dielectric constant (insulating)
  • Chemically inert
  • Very low co-efficient of friction
  • Zero attachment
  • Excellent resistance
  • UV resistant (resistant to sunlight and does not age)
  • Not hygroscopic (water absorption <0.01%)
  • FDA approved
  • Working temperature from -200°C to +205°C
FEP Applications

Polyfluor offers innovative materials for various solutions. We continue to develop our solutions because our goal is to solve your challenges to your specifications. 

For example, Polyfluor provides many FEP products, such as hoses, shrink hoses, odour sampling bags, bellows, welding wire, foil, and coating. We have devised a solution for all applications.
