Heromelt FP Fluorothermoplastics

Heromelt is the range of fluorinated thermoplastic polymers and their compounds that can be processed by melt extrusion, injection moulding and compression moulding. Heromelt FP Fluorothermoplastics (PFA, FEP, MFA and ETFE) are available as virgin polymers and as base polymers for tailor-made compounds. These products have a wide range of technical and critical applications such as “off-shore” sealing elements, pumps and valves for chemical plants, wire and cable coatings and many other precision components.

Main properties of polymers:
  • » Resistance to high temperature -200°÷260°C
    (-392°÷500° F)
  • » Excellent resistance to chemicals
  • » Non-flammable
  • » Non-stick properties
  • » Low coefficient of friction
  • » Resistance to atmospheric agents

Heromelt FP products are available with different Melt Flow Index, with virgin and re-qualified polymer base compositions as well as blended with fillers for tailor-made solutions.
Other base polymers (i.e. PVDF, ECTFE, PCTFE, ect.) are also available upon request.
