DuPont™ ECCtreme® ECA 3000 fluoroplastic resin is an industry-changing class of high-temperature perfluoroplastic (HTP) that combines the beneficial properties of typical perfluoroplastics with the potential capability to maintain operational performance under extreme temperatures (up to 300°C*) and extreme conditions. The first of its kind, ECCtreme® ECA 3000 fluoroplastic resin addresses the demand for HTPs in sustainable energy production, particularly in wire and cable applications.
The new perfluoroplastic resin drives back the traditional design boundaries for very harsh environments and expands currently available options for wire and cable once thought to be unattainable with perfluoroplastics. In fact, the functionality of ECCtreme® ECA 3000 is improved when the plastic is heat-treated at temperatures up to 300°C, resulting in epitaxial co-crystallization (ECC).
With a 40-year history in the wire and cabling business, wire and cable products made with DuPont fluoroplastic are known for their excellent chemical resistance, superior electrical properties, and high-service temperatures. DuPont offers a wide variety of fluoroplastic resins processible by various means, all of which offer high dielectric strength, a low dielectric constant, low loss factors, and extremely high specific resistance. Our fluoroplastic resins surpass most materials in their level and stability of dielectric properties over a broad range of environmental conditions.
