Our material solutions can help deliver performance and industry standards for various wire and cable applications including underground and underwater cables, electronic cables, industrial cables, mobility/automotive and construction wires, and much more.
We work closely with our suppliers to help ensure materials adhere to applicable safety, testing and performance-based standards, including:
Our thermoplastics and compounding materials include low-smoke zero halogen (LSZH) compounds, plenum and riser compounds, specialty compounds and color concentrates, which deliver flame and chemical resistance, excellent chemical strength, insulation protection, color compounding and much more.
Our rubber, polyolefin, chlorinated polyethylene (CPE) compounds and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resins are designed to be flexible, chemical, weather and ozone resistant; withstand low temperatures and have excellent physical and mechanical properties.
Our extrusion grade nylons (PA 6) for wire and cable jacketing are designed to meet requirements for thermoplastic high-heat-resistant, nylon-coated wire (THHN). Additionally, thermoplastic and water-resistant nylon-coated (THWN) wires and thermoplastic flexible fixture nylon wires (TFFN) are used in constructions and other applications, where toughness and abrasion resistance are important
Industrial applications, including wind turbine and robotic cables, can benefit from our thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) that provide flexibility, low temperature and oil resistance
Our polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) materials are ideal for electronic, electrical, communications and fiber optics, where low warpage, good chemical resistance, excellent mechanical strength and low water absorption rates are key. Additionally, polyolefin compounds are ideal for insulation and jacketing applications
