FEP Film is available from Techbelt with same day dispatch

What is FEP Film?

FEP film is the acronym for Fluorinated ethylene propylene. It is a copolymer of tetrafluoroethylen and hexafluoropropylene  It differs from the (polytetrafluoroethylene) PTFE resins in that it is melt processable using screw extrusion techniques and conventional injection moulding. FEP film (Fluorinated ethylene propylene) was invented by Du-Pont and is sold under the brand name Teflon FEP. Teflon is a brand name owned by Du-Pont.

The composition of FEP is very similar to fluoropolymers PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) and PFA (perfluoroalkoxy polymer resin). PFA film and FEP film both share PTFE’s unique properties of low friction and non-reactivity, but are far more easy to form. FEP it is highly transparent and resistant to sunlight and is also is softer than PTFE. PFA film melts at 260 °C.
