Unique electrical, thermal and chemical resistance properties make 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymer insulation a great choice for distributed heating applications used extensively in the chemical, pharmaceutical and medical processing industries. Fluoropolymer insulated heating cables can help put heat where you need it.
Thermal stability, outstanding electrical performance, low smoke generation, and flame and chemical resistance. No wonder 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers are the materials of choice when it comes to high performance cable insulation and jacketing in the automotive and communications industries. Applications include heating cables for seats, lambda probe cables, thermocouple cables and LAN cables. Because of their intrinsic flame retardancy, Dyneon fluoropolymers can be used in a broad range of applications.
The combination of broad chemical resistance, thermal stability and fire-resistant performance has seen our products introduced into many demanding fields. In addition, certain fully fluorinated polymers exhibit excellent electrical properties including very low dielectric loss – meaning that electrical signals can travel with low attenuation. This makes these polymers particularly well suited as a primary, inner insulation layer where electrical signal strength is a key requirement.
