What’s the difference between a PVC wire and a Teflon wire?

PVC is a kind of plastic product, which is essentially a kind of vacuum plastic film, it is used in the surface packaging of all kinds of panels. PVC electronic wire is composed of single or more conductive copper wires, the surface is wrapped in a layer of insulators, to prevent contact conductors, it mainly used in the internal connection of electronic and electrical equipment. PVC electronic wire internal conductors should be divided into bare copper and tinned copper according to the normal standard. PVC electronic wire characteristics: soft and hardness, gloss, acid and alkali resistance; good combustion resistance, easy to process wiring, cheaper, various specifications and color patterns.

Teflon wire refers to the wire made of fluorine plastic in the insulation layer of the wire, which generally has a high operating temperature. The biggest characteristic of Teflon wire is flaming retardant, but also has excellent corrosion resistance, oil resistance, strong acid and alkali resistance, strong oxidant and so on; excellent electrical insulation performance, high voltage resistance, low high frequency loss, non-moisture absorption, high insulation resistance, high temperature resistance, aging resistance, long service life.

The essential difference between PVC electronic wire and Teflon electronic wire is that the material used in the outer skin is different. The temperature resistance of the outer skin using PVC material is about 80 degrees, and Teflon electronic wire is about 180 degrees. Compared to PVC electronic wire, the Teflon electronic wire has the advantages of high temperature resistance, cold resistance, aging resistance, anti-corrosion and so on.
