In the cable industry


Compounding applications include wiring and cable insulation/sheathing, bottles, profiles and integrated circuit (IC) tubes. Inherently flame retardant due to its chlorine base, PVC has low conductivity, combustibility, and flammability and can be made flexible, making it an ideal material for insulation and sheathing in the cable industry. Owing to its flame retardant property, PVC has made electrical service safer and more dependable with its wide use as part of insulation of wires and cables. These include electric power cable, machine control cable, construction/housing cable, electric wires for machine/equipment (cords, wires, harnesses), etc.
