EPDM Insulated Wire
Highly Flexible Through a Wide Temperature Range
EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer) insulated wires are a type of electronic hook-up wires. EPDM insulated wires provide immense flexibility to an application. These wires are used in extreme temperatures. Hence, they are suitable for indoor as well as outdoor applications. Unlike other insulation types, EPDM does not exude oil or wax making it incompatible with some applications. This factor should be considered before making a purchase. However, these wires are preferred in high integrity applications.
Key Features & Specifications of EPDM Insulated Wire
EPDM insulated wires have several beneficial features. Some of these are listed below:
- Temperature Range: -55 °C to 105 °C
- Voltage Rating: 500 V to 10 kV
- Mechanical Properties: It displays brilliant mechanical properties like high cut-through resistance. It is also resistant to abrasive effects caused by exposure to various chemicals. Above all, these wires are preferred for their flexible properties.
- Electrical Properties: It displays high levels of dielectric strength and good insulation properties.
Key Market Areas
EPDM insulated wires are used in systems that utilize gas tubes. These applications include outdoor electrical signs, and various types of indoor and outdoor lighting.
