Fluoropolymer Materials Improve Insulation Properties of Flat Wire Jackets for High-Voltage Systems

Exton, Pa., June 23, 2022 -- Electric vehicle manufacturers are increasingly using flat wires over traditional round wires for improved efficiency and higher power output. AGC Chemicals Americas will present polymer solutions for flat wire jacket materials that enhance insulation properties, flexibility and heat resistance at the Polymers in Cables event, June 28--29 at the Sofitel Philadelphia at Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

At booth 10, AGC wire and cable experts will feature:

  • Fluon+™ adhesive PFA EA-2000 fluoropolymer coating for thin insulation applied via liquid/dip process for improved electrical insulation
  • Fluon+™ PFA-based materials applied via extrusion process for improved conductor adhesion, crack resistance and flexibility
  • Fluon+™ PEEK-based materials applied via extrusion process for improved conductor adhesion, impact strength and better abrasion loss

Also at the event, AGC Chemicals product and development engineer Keisuke Yagi will discuss innovative flat wire coating material solutions to be used as polymer and enamel layers. These solutions can replace neat PEEK, PI and PFA for better performance in critical cable constructions. He will present on Wednesday, June 29, at 12:20 p.m. in Session 5: New Material Developments.
