3P solutions are preferred when meeting high insulation. The large range of compounds, especially PTFE compounds, meet price-competitive demands up to the higher insulation needed.
Critical applications where 3P is sought are for example medium or high voltages. Based on special compound, solutions adjusted by 3P are trusted for the reliability of a whole electric distribution system.
Moreover, 3P is a world leader in PTFE tape, which can be found in electrical or data cables. Heating cables are also an important share of PTFE applications.
Cables based on wrapped PTFE tapes are recommended when applications demand high flexibility. Chemical resistance and temperature are also seeked properties. Also wrapped tapes offer low thickness unavailable with other processes, which allow full miniaturization of the cables.
The high expertise of 3P in such cables explains its position as world leader for cable suppliers. The strict control of low thickness tapes is also a strong asset offered by 3P for data cable. Such data cable require low-density, which are much more challenging. And low-density PTFE tapes are used in the most demanding microwaves/high frequency data cables, protecting the signal integrity.
Finally, the production of PTFE tapes in Europe and USA is a proof of our capacity to support our customers in their worldwide activity.
