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.

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.
The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...
For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
