HY49020 ETFE is a premium fluoroplastic resin available in translucent, 2.5-mm (0.1-in) pellets.
Compared with other grades of HY Series ETFE resin, its most unique features are an intermediate flow rate
and a balance of properties that make it suitable for a variety of processes and demanding end uses.
HY49020 ETFE resin are melt processible, modified copolymers of ethylene and tetrafluoroethylene.
They are high-performance resins that can be processed at relatively high rates compared
with fluorocarbon resins. They are mechanically tough and o_x001D_er an excellent balance of properties.

HY49020 makes it uniquely suitable for high-speed processing, especially for extrud-ed coatings and injection molding of slender, thin-walled, or intricate shapes. Properly processed products made from neat HY Series ETFE resin are inert to most solvents and chemicals, hydrolyti-cally stable, and weather-resistant. Recommended upper service temperature is 150 °C (302 °F); useful properties are retained at cryogenic ranges. The level and stability of dielectric properties are excellent, and the flame rating is V-0 by the UL94 method. Mechanical properties include outstand-ing impact strength, cut-through, and abrasion resistance.
HY49020 is ideal for many end products, including electrical components, such as sleeving, coil forms, sockets, connectors, and switches; lab ware, such as tubing, valves, containers, and dishes; battery or instrument components that require chemical inertness; chemical service items, such as valve components, seal glands, pipe plugs, and corrugated tubing and film
