Fongming cable is a supplier of custom perfluoroalkoxy (PFA) wire or cable. Fongming cable can provide PFA wire and cable in various AWG sizes, voltage ratings, compounds, shielding constructions and conductor counts.

There is a special production line in our factory to produce PFA cables.

What is PFA insulation material?

Perfluoroalkoxy, also known as PFA, is a fluoropolymer. PFA is rated up to 260°C, making it an excellent choice for high temperature applications. In addition to excellent temperature ratings, PFA also has excellent chemical resistance. The typical use of PFA insulated wire is as thermocouple wire, but it can be found in a variety of military and aerospace environments. It is available in extruded or foamed form.

Characteristics of PFA wire and cable

There are many reasons to use PFA insulation or jacketing for wire and cable. include:

Compared to FEP insulation, PFA has higher mechanical strength at high temperature

PFA offers higher operating temperatures than FEP insulation and has excellent mechanical strength at elevated temperatures

PFA (perfluoroalkoxy) insulated wire remains flexible at low temperatures

PFA insulated wire is ideal for automotive oxygen and nitrogen oxide sensors, gas igniters, medical and scientific instruments, computers, aircraft and marine systems subjected to harsh operating conditions

Due to its dielectric constant, it can be extruded into very thin walls. As a result, the wires take up less space when bundled together as a cable or grouped together as leads in a wiring harness. It is often the material of choice for miniature signal line applications.

Mechanical toughness is another benefit when choosing PFA as an insulation and jacketing material. PFA's low coefficient of friction allows "pull" installation of long wire lengths, making installation more efficient.

Fongming Cable can produce customized PFA insulated wires, multi-core PFA cables and PFA wrapped glass fiber braided wires.
