Aclon® (PolyChloroTriFluoroEthylene) is a fluorocarbon based polymer and is frequently abbreviated as PCTFE. PCTFE combines physical and mechanical properties, non-flammability, chemical resistance, near-zero moisture absorption and excellent electrical properties not found in any other thermoplastic fluoropolymer. This material also has high compressive strength, exceptional resistance to cold flow, and performs well in a temperature range of -400° F to 400°F.
Aclon® maintains an outstanding electrical insulating capability through thermal cycling and in high humidity environments. This material’s high compressive strength and dimensional stability make it a good choice for structural material, while its low outgassing rate (0.01% TML, 0.00% CVCM, 0.00% WVR when tested per ASTM E-595-90), and permeability make PCTFE a great choice for laboratory, aerospace, flight applications, and instrumentation.
