The resins comes in four different grades: FFR 330 foam resins for coaxial cables with heavy wall applications; FFR for medium size coaxial cables; FFR 750for rigid and semi-rigid high frequency coaxial cables; and FFR 750 for thin- and ultra-thin walled high frequency data and micro-coax cables.

“This new category of fluoropolymer foam resin will also simplify product comparisons, ease product grade selection and create a distinct technology platform,” says Robert D Smith, the company's global business manager for melt fluoropolymers.

DuPont is showing the fluoropolymer foam resins at the Wire 2010 show in Dusseldorf, Germany, 12-16 April. Along with the exhibits, the company is organizing seminars on how customers can introduce the new products.
