The cable jacket is the outermost layer of the cable and serves as the most important barrier to the safety of the internal structure in the cable. The cable is protected from mechanical damage during and after installation. Cable jackets are not intended to replace the stiffeners inside the cable, but they can provide a fairly high level but limited protection. In addition, the cable jacket provides moisture, chemical, UV and ozone protection. As a Mineral Insulated Copper Cables Supplier, let's share the common materials and characteristics of cable jackets.
There are many types of cable jackets, and the choice of cable sheathing materials should take into account the compatibility of the connectors and the adaptability to the environment. For example, an extremely cold environment may require a cable jacket that remains flexible at very low temperatures. Typical characteristics of some of the most common sheath types are listed below:
1. Cable sheathing material: PVC
The cable material is a particle prepared by adding a stabilizer such as a stabilizer, a plasticizer, an inorganic filler such as calcium carbonate, an auxiliary agent, and a lubricant, and kneading and kneading.
Polyvinyl chloride can be formulated for use in a variety of environments and applications. It is low cost, flexible, quite sturdy, and has fire/oil resistant materials.
However, this material contains substances that are harmful to the environment and the human body, and there are many problems when applied to a special environment. With the enhancement of people's environmental awareness and the improvement of material performance requirements, higher requirements are imposed on PVC materials.
