ShieldSys™ 402 PTFE Wire Coatings
Advanced Chemistry; Superior Durability and Abrasion Resistance; Rapid, Low-Temperature Cure
ShieldSys™ 402 PTFE wire coatings are designed to provide unmatched lubricity and anti-stick properties to all wires, cables, and composites materials. This coating adds high lubricity and antistick properties to metal, glass, rubber, and plastic surfaces. ShieldSys 402 wire coating is a isopropyl alcohol based dispersion offering accelerated dry and cure times relatives to ShieldSys 815 and 520. When applied to to a wire or cable, it exhibits outstanding adhesion, durability, and a very low coefficient of friction. This coating is particular effectively at enabling easy jacket stripping due to its high lubricity and non-stick properties. ShieldSys 402 is a proprietary PTFE wire coating formulation providing unmatched surface adhesion, durability and wear resistance to applied surfaces.
Advantages of ShieldSys™ 402 PTFE Wire Coatings:
ShieldSys 402 exhibit outstanding lubricity and extremely low coefficient of friction. Coating wire conductors provides a nonstick surface so insulation strips away easily. Coating insulated wire provides nonstick so multiple twisted wires do not stick together. The patented polymer is thermally stable and can be used at temperatures up to 250°C . The polymer is clean, non-migrating, chemically inert, and not gummy or oily.
Wire Drawing Lubricant:
ShieldSys 402 PTFE wire coating is a high performance PTFE dispersions which extremely stable dry lubricants that form a film on the wire surface for drawing. The product can also be used as a pre-coat to enhance the total performance of your drawing lubricant systems. Die wear is minimized, and faster speeds can be obtained.
Coating and Wire Stripping:
Due to ShieldSys’ unique properties they are the ideal coatings for enhancing lubricity and antistick properties on conductor or insulated wire and cable. Our PTFE Wire Coating dispersions are used to impart a thin nonstick film on metal wires as well as on insulated wire and cable products and twisted wire in jackets. Benefits include: reduce insulation stripping force, provide nonstick (abrasion resistance) to twisted wire, and a lubricant for welding wire, wire forming, and knitting.
The application of ShieldSys DryFilm products fits easily into most wire or coating production facilities. The wire can be run through a dispersion bath containing one our PTFE wire coatings. Alternately, conventional spraying equipment can be used to coat your material. A heating or drying step is recommended to ensure the carrier has evaporated prior to insulation, spooling or final operation. Quick drying can be achieved by using the solvent-based products that use isopropyl alcohol like ShieldSys 402 PTFE Wire Coatings.
