  • New Insulation Material Yields Smaller, Lighter, Greener Cables
    Alpha Wire's new EcoWire hook-up wire uses flexible Noryl insulation to provide an environmentally friendly alternative to PVC. Noryl is a modified polyphenylene ether (mPPE) thermoplastic that is inherently lighter, tougher, and more durable than PVC.
  • Compounding Cable Covering in a Rotary Mixer
    General Cable produces insulation and jacket materials for wiring products by blending temperature-sensitive thermoplastic resin pellets with solid and liquid additives in a rotary batch mixer from Munson Machinery.
  • Low-Shear Mixing for High-Performance Cable
    for the company's power cables used in utility, petrochemical, mining, nuclear, and military applications. By adding peroxides to thermoplastics, they create thermosetting, or cross-linkable, polymers that withstand higher temperatures than unaltered thermoplastic insulations can. According to Technical
  • Overmolding Circular Connectors in Cable Assemblies
    as insulation has been extruded onto copper conductors, first in rubber with transfer molding (still used in many industrial applications), and then with injection molding of thermoplastic materials such as PVC beginning in the 1950s. Overmolding is an effective means of providing strain relief
  • Hungry for large parts? Try a composite sandwich
    composite, weighing 40% less than traditional systems, features a high strength-to-weight ratio, good fatigue and impact resistance, and good sound and temperature insulation properties. Here's how the process works. Two engineering thermoplastic sheets are thermoformed into three-dimensional skins
  • Medical Device Link .
    to serve reliably in long-term medical implants. For more than 30 years, two biomaterials have been used extensively in implantable devices: cross-linked silicone rubber and thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). For products that combine the need for physical endurance with long implant times, TPUs
  • Chainflex Cables Available With Over-Molded Connectors
    of both the conductor insulation and the outer jacket. The insulation and jacket of Chainflex CF.INI are made from flexible, anti-abrasive thermoplastic polyester containing fire retardants for increased resistance. It also has a non-porous TPE outer jacket that provides superior chemical resistance
  • Polystyrene
    Noted for its sparkling clarity, hardness, ease of processing, and excellent colorability, polystyrene is a low-cost amorphous thermoplastic that often competes favorably with higher-priced resins. PS is available in a wide range of grades for injection molding, extrusion, and foam molding
