Special mechanical and chemical properties in HFFR compounds and jacketing
HFFR compounds with very high flexibility and special mechanical properties are obtained with Sipol Sipolprene® TPC-ET thermoplastic elastomer. Applications span from automotive to submarine cables.
The high dielectric strength, high flexibility, special mechanical properties, thermal resistance onto a high span of temperatures from deep-freeze to very high temperature, and resistance to aggressive solvents and saltwater showed by Sipol Sipolprene® are also particularly favourable for special cable coating.
Sipolprene® allows much thinner insulation layers than standard PVC. Also, Sipolprene® adsorbs much less water and they are considerably less expensive than standard block copolyamides.
Sipolprene® MD grade have been developed to specifically resist to polymer degradation catalyzed by metals, e.g. copper, and find application in automotive, train and airways cables, undersea exploration and other marine cables, optical fibers and data transmission in general, and many more.
