SILTEM™ RESIN A NON-HALOGENATED POTENTIAL ALTERNATIVE TO FLEXIBLE FLUOROPOLYMERS
Environment Human Health, Safety, and Security (concerns surrounding halogen containing materials have created intense regulatory and supply pressure on the fluoropolymer industry.
Fluoropolymers such as ETFE, FEP and PVDF are used in diverse applications due to their durability (heat, chemical, UV resistance) and flexibility. However, many of these products have come under global regulatory pressure due to the use of fluorosurfactants (and their negative impact to the environmental footprint.
Non halogenated SILTEM resins are easy to extrude amorphous copolymers with no intentionally added PFAS. They provide excellent high heat performance, processability and durability without using fluorosurfactants. These advanced materials can be considered for potential use in a variety of industries and applications including transportation aerospace and telecommunication cables/wires.
POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF SILTEM RESINS
Non fluorinated, with no intentionally added PFAS
• Compliant with flame, smoke and toxicity regulations (FAR 25.853)
• Compliant with certain transportation and infrastructure regulations
Process and cost efficiency (vs fluoropolymers)
• Ease of processing
• Low corrosiveness, improved cost of ownership
• Low density, lower weight parts
Durable in a range of harsh environments
• Durability with high service temperatures
• UV stable
• Excellent chemical resistance
• Highly durable in high radiation environments
SILTEM™ RESIN MATERIAL PROPERTIES
SILTEM resin is an amorphous polyetherimide siloxane (PEI Si) copolymer that is easily extrudable. The combination of silicone elastomer (with ULTEM ™resin (provides flexibility with high heat performance.
