Wires are used for any number of things. From transferring network signals to providing electricity to our homes, the uses of wires can vary and just like their uses, the diameters of said wires vary a lot. Some are a mere few millimetres in diameter and others can be well up to 10 times that. The more the wire can be expected to carry and the more powerful it’s requirement, the larger it tends to be.
For instance, providing electricity to thousands of homes, different power plants have huge wires that stretch all the way to the city where they are then taken through transformers and other things that distribute it over the city network.
As it distributes, the wires get smaller as with more distribution, each wire doesn’t have to support as large a current as the last. These wires are made of various materials such as copper and one thing that’s dangerous for any wire carrying electrical current is to leave it bare. Touching bare wires is sure to get someone electrocuted. These wires need proper insulation from the elements of weather as well to stay in good shape. Of multiple coatings that are available for these wires, PTFE low-friction coating for wires provides various benefits.
It’s a non-stick property which makes it very easy to clean. Depending on what you need the coating to do as well as the circumstances that the coating needs to perform in, you would select your coatings accordingly. The surfaces of PTFE low-friction coating are generally hydrophobic, preventing your wires from being drenched in rain or other sources of water making it difficult to actually get wet. This increases the safety of the wires themselves carrying currents and in use of chemical locations where the chemicals can just slide off the wires.
