Flowline Halar

Flowline Halar

FLOWLINE HALAR is used extensively in the chemical processing industry due to its excellent chemical resistance properties, even at elevated temperatures, and mechanical properties.

FLOWLINE HALAR demonstrates excellent overall chemical resistance. In general, only few species are known to chemically attack it. A limited number of chemicals can significantly swell the polymer, thereby affecting the performance of the material.

Halar fluoropolymer is especially resistant to:

  • Strong and weak inorganic acids and bases
  • Weak organic acids and bases
  • Salts
  • Aliphatic hydrocarbons
  • Alcohols
  • Strong oxidants
  • Halogens

The key properties of FLOWLINE HALAR are:

  • Excellent chemical resistance to acids and strong bases, up to pH 14
  • Excellent barrier properties to oxygen, carbon dioxide, chlorine gas and hydrochloric acid
  • Very good electrical properties
  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • Broad use temperature range from cryogenic to +150°C (depending on the grade and stresses applied)
  • Good weathering resistance
  • Excellent intrinsic fire resistance
  • UL class 94 V-0 at 0.18mm. LOI >52 %. Low flame spread, low smoke generation
  • Exceptional surface smoothness
  • Very good impact strength
  • Good mechanical properties
