What Is A High Temperature Wire?

- Dec 11, 2019-

High-temperature wires are relatively speaking. For example, PVC wires have a temperature resistance of 80 ° C, 90 ° C, and 105 ° C. Then 105 ° C-resistant PVC wires are high-temperature wires compared to other two types of PVC wires. However, in general, the high-temperature wires that people refer to are fluoroplastic high-temperature wires, because the temperature resistance of fluoroplastics can reach 200 degrees Celsius and 250 degrees Celsius compared to 105 degrees Celsius for PVC wires and 180 degrees Celsius for silicone wires.


Due to the special use of high-temperature wires, usually in the aviation, automotive, lighting, and home appliance industries, high-temperature wires have special requirements for conductors. Tin-plated copper or silver-plated copper is generally used. Because the copper wire is added with a plating layer, the oxidation resistance is enhanced, the abrasion resistance and corrosion resistance are improved, and the conductivity is increased. Coupled with the fluoroplastic whose insulation layer is "King of Plastics", the performance of high-temperature wires is more stable, and it is flame-retardant and anti-aging.


The insulation layer of high-temperature wires uses fluoroplastics, which is a kind of environmentally friendly wires. Its combustion does not generate toxic gases. Therefore, high-temperature wires have been increasingly used, especially in developed countries and large shopping malls. local. It is believed that in the near future, Teflon high-temperature wires will be more applied to household layout wires.
