One such material is Daikin’s Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP), a polymer that’s perfect for the kind of next generation wiring that’s increasingly being put to use in today’s applications. The material itself maintains a continuous service temperature up to 200 degrees Celsius. “Daikin’s FEP increases the safety, and data handling capability of current and next generation high speed interconnect cables,” said Dan Kennefick, a business development executive at Daikin. The material is extremely inert, has excellent electrical properties, high chemical stability, low friction, excellent long term weathering and very good low temperature properties; all characteristics that make it ideal for insulating wires and ensuring they operate reliably and safely.
