Calendered Fluoropolymer Films are a new alternative for engineers and designers seeking lightweight high-performance solutions to problems often associated with skived film. At less than half the weight and more than twice the dielectric strength of skived film, calendered fluoropolymer film is an exceptional and cost efficient answer to countless applications. Judge for yourself, calendered fluoropolymer film well surpasses the performance limitations of skived PTFE film.

Benefits.

  • Higher dielectric strength - better arc resistance
  • Lower elongation
  • Lower porosity - reduced permeability
  • Smoother surface - reduced skive lines
  • High tensile strength
  • Reduced cold flow - less creep
  • Very low moisture absorption
  • Light transmission and transparency
