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.
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.

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.
To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...
Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
