TPE for Electric & Cable Applications

Elastron thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) offers a wide range of products for the Electrical and Wire & Cable markets. Cable jacketing, connectors, multigates, box seals, electrical grommets and plugs are among the applications for which Elastron TPEs can provide viable and cost effective solutions for these industries.

Elastron offers proven TPE technology in its portfolio of products for Electrical and Wire & Cable applications including halogen free flame retardant (HFFR), halogenated flame retardant (FR), general purpose TPVs and SEBS based TPEs.

Elastron TPE materials for Wire & Cable applications exhibit low dielectric constant, high dielectric strength, high volume resistivity sufficient to meet the requirements of primary insulation and cable jacketing for various cable types including welding cables, coaxial cables, mechanical tool cables and instrumentation cables, among others.

Key properties of Elastron TPE products include excellent UV and ozone resistance, low smoke density and non-toxicity properties which are free of heavy metals and meet applicable RoHS regulations. Additionally, Elastron TPE solutions are in compliance with ELV directives. (end of life vehicle) These factors along with advantages in flexibility at low & high temperatures make Elastron TPEs an advantageous alternative to PVC.  Elastron offers TPE compounds with copper stabilization and in natural color or pre-color as may be required for particular applications. Furthermore, recyclability is an important solution for sustainable and eco-friendly solutions.

Elastron has UL 94 listed TPV and SEBS based flame retardant TPE products for cable jacketing and other electric applications. V₀ - V₁ -V₂ - HB rated flame retardant grades have been designed for optimum processability in injection molding and extrusion processes.
