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.

Researchers from the University of Basel have reported a new method that allows the physical state of just a few atoms or molecules within a network to be controlled. It is based on the spontaneous self-organization of molecules into extensive networks with pores about one nanometer in size. In the journal ‘small’, the physicists reported on their investigations, which could be of particular importance for the development of new storage devices.
Around the world, researchers are attempting to shrink data storage devices to achieve as large a storage capacity in as small a space as possible. In almost...
The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.
Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.
The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...
A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.
Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
