What's The Temperature Resistance And Electrical Insulation Of FEP Tube

High temperature resistance and electrical insulation of FEP tube


FEP can be used for -200 to 200 degree C work temperature. and for 0.1mm wall thickness, its breakdown voltage is 3kv. 1mm wall thickness, breakdown voltage up to 30 kv


FEP pipe is of high temperature resistance, non viscosity, good performance of water and oil mixing, and it will not burn in the air. Only at high temperature, the element fluorine, alkali metal and it will play a role, and have no effect on all other concentrated and dilute inorganic organic acids, bases and esters. The function of FEP pipe is generally used in exposed, connected and crossed parts of wires and cables.



Through the use of hot air machine can make it compact, play insulation, protection and other functions. Moreover, the heat resistance of the shrink tube is soft and elastic. It is often used on the wire joint. Select a proper FEP pipe, cover it on the wire joint, heat it with a hot-air gun, and the FEP pipe shrinks.



FEP is a copolymer of tetrafluoroethylene and hexafluoropropylene, which is also a modified material of polytetrafluoroethylene. The modified material has similar characteristics with polytetrafluoroethylene, and also has good processing properties of thermoplastic. So the pipe made of this material also has good performance.


FEP pipe has very high electrical insulation performance, but also has good physical properties, with strong chemical stability and mechanical properties and other properties. These properties of FEP tube are of great help to some high-end industries.


For example, if some important lines are exposed to the outside for a long time, corrosion reaction will occur. If a FEP pipe is sheathed as protection, the lines in them will not be deteriorated due to the change of the external environment. FEP tube can be used no matter how bad the environment is. Its application range can be used in high temperature and high frequency, such as transmission line of electronic equipment, internal connecting line of electronic computer and insulation layer protection of other motor winding lines and so on.
