What is fluorine plastic?

- Oct 15, 2018-

Plastics containing fluorine atoms in the molecular structure are always called fluorine plastics. Fluorine plastics are composed of fluorine-containing monomers. Monomers such as Tetrafluoroethylene, PTFE, perchloroethylene, polyvinylidene fluoride and vinyl fluoride are obtained by means of polymerization or copolymerization. With the continuous development of polymer technology, fluorine plastic varieties are gradually increasing, the scope of application is increasingly expanding. Because fluorine plastic molecular structure contains fluorine atoms, so has many excellent properties, such as excellent electrical insulation properties, high heat resistance, outstanding oil resistance, solvent and wear resistance, good moisture resistance and low temperature resistance.

Therefore, fluorine plastics occupies an important position in the national defense, electromechanical, metallurgy, petrochemical and other industrial sectors.

In the production of wire and cable, commonly used fluorine plastic has PTFE, poly-fluoro-propylene, polyvinylidene fluoride, tetrafluoroethylene and ethylene copolymer, etc., to manufacture all kinds of heat-resistant high-temperature insulated wire, measuring (oil) Well cable, geological detection cable heating cable, F-Class and H-class motor lead wiring, radiation-resistant wire, electromagnetic wire, RF coaxial cable
