Product Description
DuPont ™ Teflon ® PTFE 6C X is a polytetrafluoroethylene fine powder resin used primarily for paste extrusion. Teflon ® PTFE 6C X offers the excellent combination of properties typical of the Teflon ® fluoropolymer resins:
  • non-aging characteristics;
  • chemical inertness to nearly all industrial chemicals and solvents;
  • exceptional dielectric properties, stable with frequency and temperature;
  • toughness and flexibility;
  • low coefficient of friction;
  • non-stick characteristics;
  • negligible moisture absorption;
  • excellent weather resistance;
  • service temperature up to 260°C (500°F);
  • useful properties at -240°C (-400°F);
  • moderate stiffness and high ultimate elongation.

Teflon ® PTFE 6C X is designed for processing at medium to high reduction ratios (250:1 to 2000:1). It is particularly suitable for production of wire coating, wire jacketing and tubing at fast sintering rates.

Teflon ® PTFE 6C X meets the requirements of ASTM D4895-10, Type I, Grade 2, Class C.

Typical Applications
Teflon ® PTFE 6C X is mainly used for wire and cable insulation and tube with thin wall tubing such as spaghetti tubing.
