East Midland Coatings: Premier Halar® ECTFE Coating Services in the UK

Harness the Power of Halar® ECTFE Coatings

At East Midland Coatings, we specialise in Halar® coatings (sometimes known as ECTFE coatings) which are the epitome of protection and durability. In the challenging world of industrial applications, where materials are exposed to extreme environments, our Halar® coating services provide a formidable line of defence.

Perfectly aligning with the needs of sectors like chemical processing, oil and gas, and pharmaceutical industries, our coatings ensure your components stay robust and efficient, no matter the challenge.

What is Halar® ECTFE Coating?

Halar® ECTFE, a semi-crystalline fluoropolymer, offers a unique combination of properties for protection and anti-corrosion applications. Known for its superior chemical resistance, low dielectric constant, high electrical resistivity, and exceptional purity, Halar® stands out as the material of choice for industries requiring utmost reliability and longevity. The coating’s hydrophobic nature and resistance to harsh chemicals make it indispensable in today’s industrial landscape.

Why Choose Halar® Coating for Your Industry Needs

  • Unparalleled Chemical and Corrosion Resistance: Ideal for environments exposed to strong acids, bases, and solvents, our Halar® coating services ensure long-term protection against corrosive elements.
  • Optimal Thermal Resistance: With an operational temperature range of -50°C to +160°C, Halar® ECTFE coatings are suitable for high-temperature applications.
  • Electrical Insulation and Flame Resistance: These coatings serve as excellent electrical insulators and provide outstanding flame resistance, making them ideal for safety – critical applications.
  • Abrasion Resistance and Purity: Halar® coatings also offer robust abrasion resistance and high purity levels, essential for industries like pharmaceuticals and semiconductors.

Halar® Coated Parts at East Midland Coatings

Typical components coated in Halar® are those that come into contact with highly corrosive and aggressive chemicals such as:

  • Jigs & fixtures used in electroplating or etching process tanks
  • Impellers
  • Piping and ductwork systems
  • Chemical storage tanks
  • Chemical processing vessels
  • Laboratory equipment

Halar® Coating Application: A Rigorous Process for Quality Assurance

At East Midland Coatings, our Halar® coating process involves meticulous surface preparation, including cleaning and gritblasting, to ensure optimal adhesion. The coating is then applied using an electrostatic powder gun, melted, and applied at 260°C, building up the coat thickness in stages. This detailed process ensures uniformity and longevity, hallmarks of our quality commitment.

Thickness: Halar® vs PTFE and other fluoropolymer coatings:
Compared to PTFE and other fluoropolymer coatings, Halar® is much thicker at 0.2 – 1mm thick. Applied electrostatically, thickness can be increased by applying multiple coats. The thickness of Halar® can also be affected by the composition and substrate of the part being coated.

What types of components are suitable for Halar® ECTFE coating?
We commonly apply Halar® to valves, pumps, and various industrial components that require high chemical and temperature resistance.
Can Halar® ECTFE coatings be customised for specific industry requirements?
Absolutely. Our team is skilled in tailoring Halar® coatings to meet the unique demands of your industry, ensuring optimal performance and protection.
How does Halar® ECTFE coating compare to other fluoropolymer coatings in terms of durability and longevity?
Halar® ECTFE coating stands out for its exceptional durability and longevity, especially in harsh chemical and high-temperature environments. Compared to other fluoropolymer coatings, it offers superior resistance to permeation and chemical degradation. This makes it especially beneficial for industries where long-term reliability is crucial, such as in chemical processing and pharmaceutical applications.
Can Halar® ECTFE coatings be used in food-grade or pharmaceutical applications where compliance and purity are critical?
Yes, Halar® ECTFE coatings are well-suited for food-grade and pharmaceutical applications. They maintain high levels of purity and are compliant with industry standards. Their inert nature means they do not contaminate or react with the products they come into contact with, making them ideal for applications where contamination control is paramount.
What environmental factors are Halar® coatings particularly effective against, and how do they contribute to sustainability in industrial applications?
Halar® coatings are particularly effective against a wide range of environmental factors including extreme temperatures, UV radiation, and corrosive chemicals. Their robustness means coated components often have longer lifespans and require less frequent replacement or maintenance, contributing to sustainability by reducing waste and resource consumption. Additionally, their ability to withstand harsh conditions means they can be used in eco-sensitive applications, furthering environmental protection efforts.
