Related characteristics of fluoropolymer insulated wire

  • Temperature resistance performance
  • PTFEContinuous working temperature range of -200 °C ~ 280 °C
    Peak value higher than 300 °C
    PFAContinuous working temperature range of -200 °C ~ 260 °C
    FEPContinuous working temperature range of -200 °C-205 °C
  • Electrical characteristics
  • Regardless of the temperature and aging, the perfluorinated polymer can maintain excellent insulation properties (dielectric constant 2.3~2.1) and voltage resistance.

  • Chemical resistance
  • Can withstand a variety of harsh media, has excellent resistance to corrosive and inorganic chemicals.

  • Environmental resistance
  • Can withstand various harsh environments, such as high and low temperature, various weather conditions, radiation resistance, etc.

  • High flame retardant
  • Effectively improve the safety factor

  • Aging resistance
  • Long service life and high reliability

  • Miniaturization
  • Miniaturization, light weight, not occupying space, reducing weight, which is particularly important in aerospace.

Application of fluoropolymer insulated wire:

  • Composite film wrapping wire, such as PFA/PTFE, FEP/PTFE, FEP/P1 composite film wrapping wire, widely used in the aviation industry.
  • Irradiation-related ETFE is cross-linked by irradiation, which increases the strength and resistance to radiation, and enables the use temperature to reach 200°C. Because of the light weight, high strength, and radiation resistance, it has been widely used in the nuclear industry, aerospace industry and radiation exposure environment.
  • Microporous PTFE film wrapped wire, coaxial cable, microporous PTFE extruded coaxial cable, foamed FEP, PFA coaxial cable, widely used in various low-loss cables, phase-stable cables in phase-controlled range radars, and early warning aircraft use wires etc.
