Description

Kynar Flex® resins are fluorinated thermoplastic copolymers.

Kynar Flex® 3120-15 resin has been specifically designed for use in wire and cable constructions which require a 150ºC rating and improve flame and smoke resistance.

Kynar Flex® 3120-15 resin is easily processed and has excellent physical, mechanical, thermal and flame resistant characteristics. Its low viscosity allows easy processing.

Additional Characteristics:

  • Excellent thermal stability
  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • High Limiting Oxygen Index
  • Extremely low smoke emission characteristics

    Kynar Flex® 3120-15 resin meets the smoke and flame requirements of UL 910.

  • This material data has been provided by Arkema High Performance Polymers.
