Extrudable PTFE

Northwire offers an enhanced PTFE with an advanced way of processing the material. Unlike traditional, ram extruded PTFE, Northwire's solution is well-suited for high volume production, will not suffer from length restrictions, features the thinnest wall on the market, and could even offer a cost savings vs. the original processing technology.

 

Northwire's PTFE can be extruded with a thinner wall compared to other conductor materials
Various benefits make this material a great option for a variety of industries including medical, mil/aero, and industrial automation
  • Clean room compatible
  • Withstands steam, H2O2, and ETO sterilization
  • Excellent resistance to hospital-grade chemicals and solvents
  • High dielectric strength makes it possible to extrude a thin wall
  • No shrink back during high temperature soldering
  • Low cold flow of 2.5% with minimal deformation at sub-zero temperatures
