PTFE Insulated Wire

Designed for the performance and reliability you need. Compare to Teflon® Insulated Wire.

PTFE coated wire is designed to be the reliable solution you require for applications that will place your wires in extreme conditions such as high temperatures and caustic environments. At Phoenix Wire, we've taken every opportunity to optimize our processes to ensure you get both the most reliable PTFE insulated wire and the best service available.

Why PTFE Insulation?

PTFE is used around the world every day as a coating material for a number of reasons, all which come together to make it a resilient and reliable material. As an insulator, it is prized for the strength of its carbon-fluorine bonds that are incredibly flexible and non-reactive. PTFE is also hydrophobic, ensuring that water and substances with water in them will not react with a PTFE insulated wire.

In addition to its chemical properties, PTFE insulated wires cannot be cross-linked and are not subject to memory or creeping. This ensures that bending, flexing, and stressing do not move or deform the PTFE coating. This makes it an incredible material for insulation, ensuring that your PTFE insulated wires have the long flex life that allow them to remain reliable for years to come.

In addition to our PTFE insulated wiring's resistance to creeping and deformation over time, PTFE insulated wires also provide extremely reliable dielectric properties, making miniature PTFE insulated wires a popular choice for PCB applications and a much more effective, high performance, and temperature resistant alternative to polyethylene.
