Thermocouple Extension Wires – Thermoplastic Compounds

PVC (Poly-Vinyl Chloride)

Usually self-extinguishing in nature, this is utilized basically for sheath & insulation. This becomes soft above ninety degree Celsius, becomes brittle at low temperatures (minus forty degree Celsius). This has great mechanical properties, is water/chemical/oil resistant and flame retardant, and also has quite fine abrasion resistance. 


PE (Polyethylene)

This happens to be utilized basically for insulation purposes only. This has quite fine insulating properties, dielectric properties, as well as has good insulation resistance (>5000 Mohms/Km). This has an operating temperature range of –ten degree Celsius to seventy degree Celsius, & it is also very well-suited for water absorption and wear-resistant applications, wherever necessary.


Silicon Insulation

This is having excellent heat & cold resistance, and is also having great durability & excellent flexibility. The mechanical strength tends to increase by the glass braiding, which has great electrical properties suitable for high-voltage. Silicon rubber also has great resistance to chemical acids, oils as well as liquid fuels. They tend to be flame retardants that do not spread flame when exposed to fire. 


XLPE Insulation

Better known as cross-linked-polyethylene-insulation, this happens to be used commonly to insulate medium as well as high voltage cables. The operating temperatures of this range from minus fifty degree Celsius to 105 degree Celsius! This tends to be utilized mainly for isolation purposes only. 


EPR Insulation

Typically used to insulate low voltage cables as well as instrument cables; the operating temperature of this ranges from minus forty degree Celsius to ninety degree Celsius. 


PEEK Insulation

PEEK stands for Polyetheretherketone. This happens to be one of the most efficient plastics that are available today. PEEK is basically a high-temp thermoplastic insulator, which is semi-crystalline in nature. 


PTFE Insulation

PTFE stands for poly-tetra-fluoroethylene; this insulation is utilized mainly in a variety of high-temp applications in gas turbines as well as in high-voltage gas igniting wires. Owing to the thin walls, it is utilized in the aerospace industry as well as defense sectors, and even in vacuum. Its temperature ranges from -267 degree Celsius to 260 degree Celsius. 


PFA Insulation

PFA stands for Per-Fluoro-Alkoxy. This is utilized in various high-temp applications like in gas turbines. This has almost similar properties as that of PTFE insulation. This has great electrical performance as well as mechanical performance of PTFE, along with added advantages of being simple & conventionally-compressible. Its temperature ranges from -260 degree Celsius to 260 degree Celsius. 


ETFE Insulation

ETFE stands for Ethylene-Propylene-Fluoro-ethylene). This insulation is a durable material with great tear strength, nice tensile strength as well as excellent mechanical properties. This is having a wide as well as quite useful temperature range, and maintains considerable durability at quite low temperatures. This is widely utilized in both military as well as industrial applications. Its temperature ranges from -185 degree Celsius to 150 degree Celsius.


MFA Insulation

This also happens to be the fluoropolymer compound, whose temperature ranges from -200 degree Celsius to 250 degree Celsius. This is also having quite fine dielectric constant as well as great resistance to chemicals, oil, UV-radiations, as well as moisture. This happens to be used widely in various high-temp applications, military applications & industrial applications.
