Teflon is an excellent high temperature insulation with superb electrical properties. Teflon tubing and wire insulation comes in a variety of colors and typically feels slippery. The insulation is impervious to the heat and chemicals normally encountered in electronics manufacturing but the material will “cold flow” so Teflon insulation is avoided where sharp corners or points are encountered. Laminated TFE circuit boards take advantage of Teflon’s excellent microwave characteristics. Teflon emits a dangerous gas when exposed to extreme heat. White Teflon terminals are commonly used where extremely good insulation is required. The slick surface repels water so the insulation properties are fantastic even in high humidity. High quality I.C. sockets are made from Teflon to reduce leakage currents. Teflon and Teflon composite tapes with adhesive are available. FEP is a lower temperature Teflon.

High-functional fluorine resin as Teflon(PTFE, PFA, FEP) and Tefzel(ETFE) are able to solve engineer’s worries may encounter a variety of problems through its unique characteristics not found in other resins. Teflon has various kinds of characteristics; heat-resistance, chemical inertness, excellent electrical properties, non-adhesive attributes that are occurring due to the unique molecular structure of the fluorocarbon resin. More amazing thing is that excellent and unique characteristics are in just one material, Teflon.
– Thermal resistance in high-temperature continuous use temperature : PFA(260℃), FEP(200℃), ETFE(160℃)
– Chemicals tolerance : It is almost stable to most chemicals and solvents.
– Low friction : The lowest coefficient of friction of the solid material. The wear resistance can be improved if you add inorganic fillers, such as glass resin, carbon fiber, graphite, metal powder can be used in harsh environmental conditions.
– Flammability : It is flame retardant material containing limiting oxygen index(LOI) which has more than 95%. The combustion energy is very low therefore it should not cause the second fire by flame propagation.
– Purity : Teflon except for some items that contain purity fillers is generally chemically inert and pure. It does not contain any additives such as plasticizers, stabilizers, lubricants, anti-oxidants, that the cause of the contamination.
– Low temperature properties : It has property of 5% stretch in severe condition, very low temperatures (-196 degrees). Therefore, impact resistance is better than any other resin.
– Electrical Characteristics : It has minimum dielectric constant and a loss rate of the solid insulating material. It has the maximum value against high frequency and high temperature as well as against volume and surface resistivity.
– Non-adhesive : It is the smallest surface energy among solid materials, so it has excellent adhesion and release properties.
– Weatherproof : The surface contamination, discoloration, oxidation, poor performance does not happen, if you use it under outdoor for long time for excellent weatherability,
– Resistant biodegradable : It shows inert in enzyme and microbial attack. Pure Teflon does not provide the nutrients necessary for the growth of microorganisms and enzyme and place.

The insulating thermoplastic flow (cut-through) temperature is in the range of 250°C plus. In case of normal Class 130, 155 and 180 allocated to the systems for a standard stream, it is known that molded coil working and the process conditions maximum working found in the impregnation process. Polyurethane solderable type resin coatings. It solders consistently at low temperatures, such as 390°C. The magnet wire flexibility and adhesion properties of the film are more than enough for most of all application. Polyurethane shows high dielectric strength maintaining at high humidity conditions are maintained to show. In addition, Low dissipation factor’s insulation is the main cause at high frequency. Solvent resistance properties of polyurethane are most applicable for classes of 105, 130, 180 glossy varnish, encapsulation, and treating resin. It has enhanced properties(=resistance) against salt-water compared to other solderable insulations. Therefore, it may be widely used for vessel, harbor or port field. This insulation material is used for high thermal resistance and low soldering temperatures requested. You must be careful to carry out this magnetic wire because it does not show overload resistance characteristics among most non-solderable Class 105, 130, 155 and 180 resin systems.
