About Daikin America

Daikin America: Wire & Cable

Daikin fluoropolymer resins are designed to meet the needs of the most demanding wire and cable applications. Whether used as wire insulation materials, protective jacketing, or sheathing materials, Daikin fluoropolymer resins are the most chemically resistant, flame retardant, lowest smoke producing, and highest temperature rated of any resin family.

Daikin PTFE, FEP, PFA, and ETFE resins are preferred choices for wire insulation and cable jacketing applications where low flammability, low smoke emissions, superior dielectric properties, high stress-crack resistance, extreme chemical resistance, and extended thermal cycling capabilities are specified.

With a world-wide manufacturing base including production facilities in Japan, China, Europe, and the United States, Daikin easily meets demand with the resin that is needed, where it is needed, and when.

Product Uses

Wire insulation materials

Data communications cable in air return plenum spaces in the United States and Canada are required by National Codes to have very low flammability and emit very low amounts of smoke when burned. Because of the high data rate demands of these circuits, the wire insulation material must also possess superior dielectric properties. FEP is the preferred choice as a wire insulation for “plenum rated” data communication cable applications because it best meets the needed performance criteria.

Aerospace applications

Daikin fluoropolymers are used extensively in Aerospace applications as both wire insulation and as jacketing materials because of their superior dielectric properties, chemical resistance, high temperature endurance, high stress crack resistance, and extended thermal cycling capabilities.

Down Hole applications

Daikin fluoropolymers are used extensively in Down Hole applications as both wire insulation and jacketing materials because of their chemical resistance, high temperature endurance, high stress crack resistance, and extended thermal cycling capabilities.

Dielectric material for high performance coaxial RF and microwave cable

Daikin PTFE, FEP, and PFA are often chosen as dielectric materials for high performance coaxial RF and microwave cables. The superior dielectric properties of these resins plus their high temperature resistance make them ideal for high power applications where overheating is a concern.

Specialty applications

Daikin fluoropolymers are often chosen for specialty applications because of their chemical resistance, high temperature endurance, high stress crack resistance, and extended thermal cycling capabilities.
