Miniaturizing Wire and Cable Components for Smaller Devices

What kind of advantages would your products realize with wire and cable that is 47% smaller and 65% lighter than traditional PVC insulation? Because of the demand for smaller and more powerful electronic devices, design engineers must specify components that offer significant space and weight savings, without sacrificing product performance. MPPE insulation developed by Alpha Wire not only delivers size and weight benefits, it helps lowers a company's environmental footprint. Halogen free and fully recyclable, MPPE insulation ensures compliance with WEEE standards. Join this presentation and discover how you can miniaturize wire and cable components.

Key Take-Aways:
  • Learn how MPPE Insulation offers size, weight, and outgassing benefits when used on hook-up wires and multi-conductor cables
  • Discover MPPE insulation as an environmentally-friendly alternative to common insulations such as PVC and XLPE which produce dangerous and toxic gases, smoke, and acids when they burn
  • Understand why MPPE insulated wire and cable is particularly suitable for medical device and semiconductor equipment applications
