FEP – Tetrafluorethylene-Perfluoropropylene

A molten copolymer of tetrafluorethylene and perfluoropropylene with a high-molecular, partly crystalline structure which had been introduced on the market in 1960. Its mechanical and chemical properties are comparable with those of PTFE, however, the upper limit of the permanent working temperature is 50 °C lower (max. +205 °C). FEP is a typical thermoplastic material, which can be processed with the known production methods for this kind of material. New types with lower melting viscosity (= high melt flow index MFR) allow the processing at higher speed. FEP labware is translucent to transparent and non-porous.
