These cables are used for example in new technologies if high demands for resistance against chemicals and solvents must be fulfilled. Compared to ETFE, FEP has a slightly better resistance. Further advantages are the excellent temperature resistance and flexibility at cold temperatures as well as the good electrical insulating characteristics with low, nearly frequencyindependent dielectric characteristics. Exemplary applications: TD 809 F Applications in high-frequency and broad-band techniques, coaxial and microwave TD 842 (ST) F techniques, high information velocity with exact information transmission at the same TD 845 DS time, chemical industry, furnace construction, brick works, heating appliances TD 846 DS TP n Applications FEP BlueLine cables for Shipbuilding The development of the new BlueLine cable series has been advanced in co-operation with customers coming from
TetraFluorEthylene-Perfluorpropylene (FEP) is produced by copolymerization of tetrafluoroethylene and hexafluoropropylene. It is a relatively soft thermoplastic with lower tensile strength, wear resistance, and creep resistance than many other engineering plastics. However, it is chemically inert and has a low dielectric constant over a wide frequency range. FEP possesses a very high degree of stress crack resistance, a low coefficient of friction, exceptional dielectric properties, heat resistance, retention of properties after service at 400°F (204°C) with useful properties at -454°F (-270°C), and meets FDA 21CFR.177.1550.
FEP has high transparency (with good transmittance of UltraViolet and visible wavelengths.) It has long term weatherability and excellent resistance to ozone, sunlight and weather. FEP offers the lowest refractive index of all thermoplastics with low light reflection (the same as water.)
Important applications are linings for pipe and chemical processing equipment, roll covers, and numerous wire and cable applications, including aircraft wire, plenum cable, fire alarm cable, and well logging cable. Heat-shrinkable FEP tubing is available. FEP Film is used as glazing in solar energy collectors.
