If you’re looking for a high-temperature material combined with strong electrical resistance and mechanical properties, PTFE is usually the go-to choice.
Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a robust fluorocarbon polymer (plastic) material that’s commonly used to insulate cables to improve performance for demanding applications.
It’s also a very stable material – meaning that if you put it in a vacuum it has an extremely low loss of residue and won’t give off any gasses that could potentially transfer to other instruments. It’s also great for things like medical implants – as even if it ends up inside your body somehow, it won’t decompose or give off any nasty chemicals.
PTFE is commonly used in cables due its superb fire, smoke and chemical resistance properties. It also has the best electrical properties and the widest temperature range of any plastic material – being able to withstand everything from -200ºC up to +260ºC and even up to +400ºC for a short length of time.
Most people know PTFE for its thin, non-stick properties – features which offer great benefits in wires and cables. Small, thin wires and PTFE tapes allow compact design with minimal friction between components and layers – making PTFE ideal for reducing the footprint of our cables while still improving flexibility.
PTFE is a versatile material that benefits many applications, especially in ultra-demanding environments.
· Best performing material for electrical characteristics
· Best performing material for a wide temperature range (-200oC to +260oC)
· Excellent fire, smoke and chemical resistance properties
· Low friction for an improved cable lifespan
