ECCtreme® ECA 3000
High Temperature Resin

All the properties you expect from a perfluoroplastic ... with an operating rating of 300 °C1.

ECCtreme® ECA perfluoroplastic marks the begining of a new class of high temperature resin that can be used in ultra-harsh environments, maintaining its properties under high temperatures, pressures and exposure to corrosive chemicals.

ECCtreme® ECA fluoroplastic offers these inherent characteristics:

• Outstanding electrical insulating properties at high
   temperature
• UL listed 300 °C rating1,2
• Improved properties with high temperature use
• Increased stress crack resistance
• Longer life at higher temperature than competing
   plastics
• Outstanding chemical resistance properties
• Improved permeation resistance to CH4, O2, CO2 and
   water
• Melt-processible, wide operating window
• Low flammability
ECCtreme® ECA 3000 addresses the demand for high temperature tolerance, and holds the promise for enhancing technologies that are used to produce both traditional and alternative forms of energy, such as oil and gas and geothermal energy, as well as in the signal and wire cabling markets.  The beneficial properties of ECCtreme® ECA 3000 can also be used to produce injection and compression molded parts, as well as extruded tubing wherever current fluoroplastics are traditionally used. 

1 300 °C rating is based on UL 746B testing. Not a guarantee of performance; see section "Important Notice.”  

2 For wire and cable applications, 300°C rating is based on UL 1581 and UL 758 testing.
