RS PRO ETFE (Tefzel) Wires

From RS PRO, This ethylene tetrafluoroethylene (also known as Tefzel) insulated wire is manufactured to meet the requirements of defence standard 61-12 Part29/1. Its outer sheath resists temperatures up to +270 °C and has good chemical and abrasion resistance. The wire conductors are made from tin plated copper wire. The properties of ethylene tetrafluoroethylene wire make it suitable for use in a wide variety of industries and applications including, aerospace, nuclear cables, electronics wiring, medical wiring and appliance wiring. All models are highly reliable and excellent quality.

Features and Benefits

• Flame retardant
• Thin and lightweight
• Resistant to abrasion, fuel, oil and chemicals
• Available in black or white
• Defence standard 61-12 Part29/1 compliant

What is harsh environment wire?

Defined by its name, harsh environment wire is cable suitable for less than friendly environments. Typically used as hook up wire, each reel performs to an optimum level within harsher areas. High temperature can be a massive threat in terms of electronics, causing all kinds of health and safety risks. These RS PRO cables provide excellent resistance to such problems.

Where is harsh environment wire used?

Any electronic devices situated within harsh environments would benefit from this type of wire. Laboratories would be be a good example, as they are areas which could have toxic and potentially damaging gasses that interfere with wires. As as example, some areas using these cables would be:

• Construction sites
• Car engines
• Aeroplanes
• Petrol stations
