New ETFE adhesive bonds to engineered plastics and metals

AGC Chemicals Americas Inc. has added a resin to its LM-ETFE AH series of adhesive fluoropolymers. Fluon ETFE LH-8000 exhibits advanced adhesive properties that allow it to bond to dissimilar materials, such as polyamides, polyethylenes and metals. The adhesive functionality of Fluon LH-8000 is ideal for producing multilayer structures in a one-step process without surface treatment and by often eliminating the need for a tie layer.

The LH-8000 has chemical resistance and electrical and non-stick properties equivalent to conventional ethylene tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE) resins. However, it is an ultra-low-melting resin that is cost-effective for applications such as hot water hoses, rubber hose mandrels, anti-stick conveyor belts, chemical bags, multilayer monofilament, interlayer insulation film for electronic substrates and tubes that convey harsh materials in the chemical, plastics, oil and gas, building and paint industries.
