XLPE

Polyethylene is one of the most widely used polymers for cable insulation and jacketing. Its excellent properties make it useful in many telecom and power applications. During the compounding process, additives can be introduced to improve resistance to ageing and to UV light, or to produce cellular insulation, thus improving the dielectric properties needed for some telecom applications. Polyethylene can also be cross-linked to improve its thermo-mechanical and water resistance for power applications. Cross-linking changes polyethylene from a thermoplastic to a thermoset material, which creates a high resistance to stress cracking, cut-through, soldering, and many solvents. Polyethylene is a very flammable material that can be controlled by the use of special flame-retardant additives. These additives, however adversely affect many of polyethylene's electrical properties, such as the dielectric constant, power factor, and dielectric strength. Low cost, chemically cross-linked polyethylene insulation, can be used for internal wiring of appliances. It is available in all colour, stripes, hash marks etc. UL listed fixture wire 18 AWG - 14 AWG.
