Incredible advantages of PVC Insulated Cables
PVC is one of the most popular and widely used electrical cables that offer insulation and sheathing. In 1951s, PVC cables came into existence to replace the rubber insulated and sheathed cables. People started using it for household wiring as it was easy to bring in operation. PVC is considered agile and durable as it easily exceeds 25-30 years while serving for our house wiring.
PVC vs XLPE
Insulated cables are classified into XLPE and PVC. The difference between these two is a thermoset and thermoplastic material. PVC cables maintain a perfect balance between cost and safety. Hence PVC cables are higher in demand in comparison to the XLPE cables.
PVC is considered a versatile material that can collaborate with plasticizers, lubricants, and stabilizers to develop high-quality cables and wires. PVC is also easy to process and recycle when used as a thermoplastic type. It can offer better age when associated with other rugged materials.
PVC cables are fire retardant
PVC insulation or sheathing ensures normal cables to be fire retardant or fire-resistant. Being fire retardant for a cable is very important in most applications. Not only fire-resistant, but PVC can also be crafted resistant to many chemicals like acids, alkalis, oils, etc. Additives like different plasticizers can make it more durable and resistant to many dangerous factors responsible for the loss of lives and home appliances.
Lightweight and easy to process
PVC insulated cables are lightweight in comparison to the other cables and reduce the difficulty in manual operation. It also offers a smaller bending radius to make the installation and storage easy.
Better short-circuiting rating
PVC cables offer better circuiting of the current in comparison to the normal wires and cables. PVC can withstand up 1600c of temperature.
