Additional Information

Material Selection & Preservation for Longevity of Service

The selection of material by a customer often comes down to either carefully developed client specifications; cost / value options; or a combination of both. There will be numerous applications where the material selection is a lot more critical than it is in others.

Cable Materials & Compounds

Some of the key criteria when cable specifications are developed include; - Flexibility (e.g. bending radius) - Thermal properties (insulation/operating temperature) - Mechanical properties (tensile strength, hardness) - General design (loose or compact construction) - Bedding type (laid up, wrapped, extruded) - Fire performance characteristics (e.g. HF – FR).
