Manufactured for Extremes
PTFE insulators are used primarily because of their superior dielectric properties especially at high radar and microwave frequencies. PTFE is also capable of much higher temperatures than many other materials. It is classed as a high performance substitute over weaker and lower melting point polyethylene.
VICTREX PEEK is used where high temperatures exist as it has a very high melting point. It also benefits from excellent electrical properties and the key is it retains its mechanical properties and electrical properties at high temperatures.
Some of the more complex connectors we manufacture are for aircraft and military applications where failure could mean the aircraft computer brain loses its connection with important weapons or mechanical systems within the aircraft. These are the ultimate in precision and reliability and use materials that are often bespoke to the customers.
