What is Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene / ETFE?

Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene, also referred to as ETFE, is a form of fluoropolymer insulation. ETFE is a very versatile form of insulation. Its ability to withstand high temperatures and harsh environments make ETFE a good choice for the aerospace, medical, nuclear and instrumentation industries. ETFE can be used for any application that requires chemical resistance, high temperatures, radiation resistance and good electrical properties. ETFE can branded as Tefzel™, made by DuPont™/Chemours™.

ETFE is often chosen over FEP or PTFE due to its superior mechanical strength. It has excellent heat-age properties and can withstand high-voltages. ETFE is available in several standard Mil-W-22759 (Mil-Spec hook-up wire) constructions and in several different Mil-C-27500 (Mil-Spec multi-conductor cable) constructions.
