CU/XLPE/PVC low voltage power cables are very hardy and can handle a wide range of environments and conditions. Thus, CU/XLPE PVC cables are suitable for fixed installation at Indoor and outdoor area, buried underground, wet or dry environments. Due to its flexibility to most kind of environment, CU/XLPE/PVC cables are suitable to be installed in almost all industrial areas: in cable ducts, cable trunking, ducts, cable trays, cable ladders and even switchgears.
Polyvinyl Chloride, or PVC, is a synthetic thermoplastic polymer, which allows its manufacturers to adjust its characteristics, ranging from brittle to flexible PVC cables. PVC is fire resistant due to the significant amount of chlorine within it and provides exceptional electrical insulation, making it perfect for electrical cabling. PVC doesn’t corrode and is chemically very stable, making them popular choices for power cables in Singapore’s industrial sectors.
XPLE, otherwise known as Cross-Linked Polyethylene, is a form of polyethylene. It is predominantly formed into tubing and for cabling. It has high electric and mechanical strength, is highly resistant to chemical corrosion and environmental stress. As such, XPLE, with its durable properties is a significant reason why CU/XLPE/PVC cables are so hardy and can be used across so many industries and applications.
