Abstract : A new high-temperature thermoplastic known as polysulfone has been of considerable interest as an insulation for wire. The inherent physical properties of polysulfone indicate that as a wire insulation it would be tough, strong and abrasion resistant, with good electrical properties. Some other very important properties include vertical and horizontal flame resistance, excellent high temperature cut-through resistance, and fabrication characteristics that enable thin coatings down to 1 mil. to be placed on wire. This paper discusses the properties of a special extrusion grade polysulfone, P-2300, when used as a wire insulation.
