LUCOBITAG POLYMERS AND THEIR USE IN WIRE AND CABLE APPLICATIONS
The use of polymers for wires and cables was dominated by elastomers for a long time. Nowadays, wire and cable production shifted towards thermoplastics mostly based on PE's and PVC's, replacing more and more traditional elastomers.
PE's offer excellent insulating capability, moisture and chemical resistance, flexibility as well as light weight. In comparison, PVC's are heavier, flexible and are somewhat poorer insulators. LUCOBIT AG'S LUCOFIN products are excellently suited to be used neat or in blends and show an incredible versatility with almost limitless variabilty, a wide density range, and a molecular weight and distribution ranging from low to very high.
