At Wire 2016 The Chemours Company presents its broad portfolio of Teflon™ resins for the wire & cable industry

22.01.2016

The Chemours Company (“Chemours”) (NYSE: CC), a global chemical company with leading market positions in titanium technologies, fluoroproducts and chemical solutions will be exhibiting its wide range of fluoroplastics for the wire and cable industry in hall 17, stand D66 at Wire 2016.

Further additions to the ECCtreme™ ECA family, a class of melt-processable perfluoroplastics which combines the advantageous mechanical, electrical and chemical properties of PTFE with high thermal stability.

At Wire 2016 Chemours presents its extensive offering for the wire and cable industry.

Key solution topics are highest service temperatures of up to 300 °C, miniaturization, superior data transfer, weight savings as well as patented PTFE Channel Extrusion Technology providing improved electrical properties.

Wire & cable property performance of various fluoroplastics and technologies.

For instance, at a thickness of 0.75 mm, the material has an RTI (Relative Thermal Index) listing of 300 °C according to UL 746B.

Thanks to its continuous service temperature of 300 °C, ECCtreme™ ECA thus exceeds the previous upper limit of 260 °C for conventional perfluoroplastic insulating materials.

ECCtreme™ ECA grades can be processed on conventional extrusion equipment for high-temperature fluoroplastics using standard processing conditions. Downstream heat treatment (epitaxial co-crystallisation) improves the material's thermal resistance and offers beneficial mechanical properties, such as long-term tensile modulus and improved stress cracking resistance.

The material is suitable for wire and cable insulations, which are exposed to extreme service conditions such as very high temperatures, elevated pressures and corrosive surroundings. Typical fields of application are the oil and gas industry, aerospace, energy generation, semiconductor fabrication and the automotive industry.

"This development is our response to industry's challenge to offer a high-temperature, melt-processable perfluoroplastic", explains Frenk Hulsebosch, Global Product Manager Melts Fluoroplastics at Chemours Fluoropolymer Solutions.

Further products presented on the stand will include Teflon™ fluoroplastic foam resins (FFR) produced using patented Airquick technology. Cables made with foamed fluoroplastic insulation have a lower signal return loss than conventional data cables, so enabling miniaturization and weight savings thanks to lower density and thinner insulation thicknesses.

One current example is the new KL24 Star-Quad data cable developed for the aerospace industry by Draka Fileca, Sainte-Geneviève, France which won a DuPont Plunkett Award in 2013. At identical diameter, it is up to 25 per cent lighter than previously used quad cables and enables a reduction in aircraft fuel consumption, so reducing environmental impact.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
