New Dimension of Reliability & Safety

Modern transportation and communication systems such as autonomous driving, e-mobility, IoT and 5G demand a new dimension of reliability and safety from products and components. Teflon™ fluoroplastic foam resin (FFR), based on Chemours patented technology, and offers a unique combination of low attenuation, high dielectric strength, outstanding chemical resistance and inherent flame retardancy. Cables made with foamed fluoroplastic insulation have a lower signal return loss than conventional data cables, allowing for increased reliability of data transmission. Thanks to their lower density and decreased insulation thicknesses, they enable miniaturization of cables and weight savings which can contribute to an improved efficiency.
