In today’s industrial environments, being mindful of the water, oils and other chemicals that come into contact with your cable can give you an advantage in choosing the right product with the longest survival. A cable’s jacket can swell, crack or harden after exposure to acidic and caustic chemicals and can even wick the fluids into the cable itself.
Exposure to chemicals, coolants and oils occurs in many operations in just about every market. TPC offers UL recognized chemical and solvent resistant cables in different jacket materials that all offer chemical resistance so you can choose the right product family for your specific application.
Super-Trex® products are jacketed with a specially compounded thermoset elastomer which has excellent resistance to most chemicals and solvents. Resistance was measured by calculating the change in cable diameter before and after immersing cable specimens in solution for an extended period of time at room temperature.
Trex-Onics® products are jacketed with a specially formulated polyurethane for a broad range of applications and excellent resistance to oils, solvents and chemicals.
The Chem-Gard® brand of products feature a proprietary fluoropolymer jacket and insulation delivering tough-yet-flexible cable designed to withstand corrosive chemicals, abrasion, high temperatures and even extreme cold. Chem-Gard offers an extensive line of shielded and unshielded cables with both single and multi-conductor configurations.
