Excellent heat stability
Excellent electrical properties
Low water absorption
Baerlocher additives give PVC cables a host of beneficial attributes – including exceptional heat resistance, long-term stability and color fastness.
Plasticized PVC has been used to produce cable and wire insulation and sheathing for more than 50 years. PVC is one of the most widely used cable polymers due to its excellent insulation and sheathing qualities for cables. The PVC used must possess specific characteristics to match the respective application, which can range from grounding, telecommunications, installation and heating lines, to cables for the electronics and automotive industries.
The stabilizer system has a significant influence on the performance and service life of PVC cables. It enables efficient manufacture of cables and wires, and imparts specific attributes to the finished product – including good heat stability and electrical properties, initial color and color stability, good mechanical properties, stabilizer dispersion, and light stability.
