Properties of ETFE:
ELONGATION AT BREAK300-400%
ETFE is commonly used in the nuclear industry for tie or cable wraps, and in the aviation and aerospace industries for wire coatings. This is because ETFE has better mechanical toughness than PTFE. In addition, ETFE exhibits a high-energy radiation resistance and can withstand moderately high temperatures for a long period of time. Due to it's high temperature resistance ETFE is also used in film mode as a mold release film. ETFE film such as PMP Film by Honeywell is used in aerospace applications such as carbon fiber pre-preg curing as a release film for molds or hot high pressure plates.
