Electrical demands in automotive applications are continually increasing. Power steering, air conditioning, satellite navigation, heated seats, and other amenities result in an increased load on electrical circuits. Teflon™ fluoropolymer resins play an important role in transforming these former luxury items into standard offerings for today's automobiles.
Demand for additional automotive electronic components has evolved through:
The need for enhanced safety features Environmental regulation compliance including greater fuel efficiency and lower emissions An increase in Comfort and Ergonomics A minimum of 15 years of operational efficiency of system assemblies The automobile industry's move from 12 volt to 42 volt systems Noise reduction through enhanced sound insulation Lower usage and maintenance cost
New designs in fuel systems, braking systems, powertrains, chassis, and interiors require specialized high-performance cabling. Teflon™ fluoropolymers play a key role where thinner yet better insulating materials are needed to withstand ever-increasing service temperatures.
How Teflon™ fluoropolymer resins can satisfy your automotive cabling application needs
The following properties make Teflon™ fluoropolymer resins an excellent choice for your automotive applications:
High / Low temperature resistance Chemical and hydrolysis resistance High dielectric properties Arc-tracking resistance Stress-crack resistance (tested against military specifications) Dimensional stability Low permeability Low coefficient of friction
Chemours offers a variety of Teflon™ fluoropolymer resins to help meet the wide range of demands of the automotive cabling industry. Each of our Teflon™ fluoropolymer resins is supported by a long history of scientific expertise and an experienced sales staff who can help fulfill your business needs.
