TFLON insulation of each material
PFA Insulated Wire and Cable
PFA Insulated Cable and Wire is excellent for high temperature applications. PFA insulation can withstand operating temperatures up to 260° Celsius, and has superior mechanical strength at high temperatures as compared to FEP insulation. It exhibits excellent low-temperature toughness. PFA insulated wire and cable is also used in applications requiring a chemical resistant wire and cable. PFA insulation is inert when exposed to most industrial solvents and chemicals. PFA insulation retains its useful properties in temperatures ranging from –200° C to +260° C.
FEP Insulated Wire and Cable
Teflon FEP fluoroplastics are processed by conventional melt extrusion techniques and by injection,compression,transfer and blow molding processes. Teflon FEP fluoroplastics are ideal for wire coating and molding a wide variety of end use articles and components.Teflon FEP offers an excellent combination of properties characteristic of all fluoroplastics;a wide service temperature range,exceptional dielectric and electrical properties,low coefficient of friction,low flammability and chemical resistance.Teflon FEP has a service temperature range,up to 200°C (392°F).While Teflon FEP can be fabricated into solid shapes and molded articles it is best known as an industry leading product line in the wire and cable industry where it is used for wire coating and cable jacket fabrication.Teflon FEP offers wire and cable OEMs a high performance fluoroplastic material with excellent electrical properties,ease of processing and consistent performance.The Teflon FEP product line is one the broadest in the industry.With Melt Flow Rates (MFR) from 3 to 30,and a wide range of application specific grades,Teflon FEP is uniquely positioned to offer exceptional performance in both general purpose and high speed wire and cable constructions.
FEP Insulated Cable and FEP Wire are also used in applications involving high temperatures and harsh environments. FEP insulation exhibits is inert in most chemical environments and exhibits excellent resistance to high temperatures. It displays outstanding low-temperature toughness. FEP insulated wire and cable also displays very low flammability, excellent weather resistance and electrical stability. FEP insulated wire is commonly used in chemical, electrical, and medical applications and maintains its properties in temperatures ranging from -200° C to +200° C (or -328° F to +392° F).
ETFE Insulated Wire and Cable
ETFE Insulated Cable and Wire is heat resistant up to 150 °Celsius. ETFE insulated wire and cable also displays high levels of mechanical toughness, flexibility and abrasion resistance. ETFE insulation is therefore commonly used in applications requiring good mechanical strength, good properties of chemical resistance, ability to withstand high temperature environments and good properties of electrical stability. ETFE insulation exceeds the mechanical properties of both PTFE and FEP. The operating range of EFTE insulated wire and cable is from -100° C up to +150° C.
PTFE Insulated Wire and Cable
Polytetrafluoroetheylene, also referred to as PTFE and Teflon, is a synthetic fluoropolymer. PTFE is typically used in extreme environments. PTFE can withstand very high and low temperatures, is extremely durable and exhibits excellent electrical properties. These characteristics explain why PTFE / Teflon is a widely used product. PTFE is commonly used military, aerospace, coaxial, and appliance wiring applications.
A fluorinated thermoplastic with outstanding thermal, physical, high strength, and electrical properties. PTFE is generally restricted to applications requiring its special characteristics because its basic resin and processing costs are relatively high.PTFE is especially suitable for internal wiring-soldering applications where insulation melt back is a specific problem. PTFE insulation is outstanding in its resistance to oil, oxidation, heat, sunlight, and flame; and also in its ability to remain flexible at low temperatures.
