OMEGA-ELECTRA ® Ethylene-Chlorotrifluoroethylene (ECTFE) has a unique chemical structure, which results in a material that has a remarkable resistance to most organic and inorganic chemicals, as well as, solvents which have no affect under 120°C.

OMEGA-ELECTRA ® has excellent mechanical strength with properties similar to polyamide. OMEGA-ELECTRA ® is a strong, highly impact-resistant, melt processable copolymer that retains its useful properties over a broad range of temperatures & cryogenic up to 150ºC. OMEGA-ELECTRA ® also exhibits excellent electrical properties, low moisture absorption and temperature insensitivity, making it a material of choice for plenum –rated wire and cable jacking. OMEGA-ELECTRA ® is distinguished from other fluoropolymers by its exceptional surface smoothness. In addition to electrical components, OMEGA-ELECTRA ® works well for high purity processing components for the chemical and semiconductor industries.
