Flame Retardant Wire Markers

Polyimide Based Solutions for the Aerospace Industry: Tedlar Alternative!

Identification of wire and cable bundles inside an aircraft require robust materials that will not unwrap or fall off when subjected to harsh fluid and chemical attack found in the Aerospace manufacturing industry. In addition, engineers desire materials that are flame retardant and will not propagate a flame during a fire event. The wire markers used in the aerospace industry need to be able to adhere adhesive to adhesive and act as a flag marker or adhere uniformly around the diameter of a wire or cable for identification and tracking.

Equipped with an ultra-aggressive acrylic adhesive and based on polyimide film, Polyonics has developed a line of flame retardant wire markers to withstand the harsh environments not only in the aerospace industry, but electrical and commuter railway applications. The thick adhesive provides the highest bond strength so the marker will not come apart or unwrap in the harshest conditions.

Polyonics combines special coatings and halogen free flame retardant technologies with the high temperature resistance of polyimide film to provide a durable label material that meets the challenging requirements for the aerospace industry including:

  • Smoke and Toxicity testing BSS7238 and BSS7239
  • FAR 25.853 and 25.855
  • Halogen Free IEC 61249-2-21
  • Significant "self-extinguishing" performance.

XF-641 is a 1 mil, matte white topcoat designed for thermal transfer printing. Bar codes, graphics and text information printed with the proper inks or thermal ribbon will withstand the high temperatures, harsh chemicals, and solvents.

XF-647 is a 1 mil, matte yellow topcoat designed for thermal transfer printing. Bar codes, graphics and text information printed with the proper inks or thermal ribbon will withstand the high temperatures, harsh chemicals, and solvents.
