: : Film Extrusions of Litz Wire


Extrusion Type Advantages
FEP
Excellent chemical and weather resistance, relatively flexible, anti-static, dirt-repellent, non-abrasive, hardly flammable, very age resistant, almost universal chemical stability.

Temperature range:
-100 C to + 205 C (permanent)

FEP insulated wires are used in environments with extreme chemical, thermal and mechanical stress.
Exceptional dielectric properties allow very thin insulation layers (space-saving wiring). Thanks to its frequency stability, FEP is suitable for moving coils.
PVC
Good electrical properties with medium to good flexibility and good age resistance.

Temperature range:
-10 C … +70 C (permanent, fully flexible)
-10 C … +80 C (only type HK18-H)
-30 C … +70 C (only high current wires)

Universally used for measurement conductors and wiring with medium mechanical stress and a good cost benefit ratio.
Silicone
Silicone provides good chemical and age resistance, high impact value, maximum elongation and tears strength; it is halogen-free and thus environment-friendly.

Temperature range:
-80°C to +150°C (permanent steam-resistance)
to +250°C (several hours)
to +300°C (temporary, contact with soldering iron)

Used, e.g. for making up maximum flexibility test leads, wiring very flexible parts. An important safety feature is the silicone ash produced after burning which continues to insulate the wires in the event of a fire. This can mean the continued function of electrical installations in industrial plants.
Polyethylene
Polyethylene is a non-cross linked polyethylene foam, formed of innumerable cells, thermo-chemically expanded from low density polyethylene resins.

Polyethylene features some outstanding properties.  It is durable, weather-proof and dynamically stable with a high tear strength and chemical resistance.  It is suitable for repeated and continual use under a wide range of conditions.
