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.
PTFE is used primarily because of its superior dielectric properties especially at high radar and microwave frequencies.
- PTFE is 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 benefits from excellent electrical properties.
- It retains its mechanical properties and electrical properties at high temperatures.
Being hydrophobic, non-wetting, high density and resistant to high temperatures, PTFE is an incredibly versatile material with a wide variety of applications, though it's perhaps best-known for its non-stick properties.
It is a linear, aromatic, semi-crystalline polymer widely regarded as one of the highest performing thermoplastics in the world. It provides a unique combination and range of high performance properties.
