The Application of Silica Gel in Cable Industry

The Application of Silica Gel in Cable Industry

1. What is silica gel


Organosilica gel is an organosilicon compound, which refers to a compound that contains Si-C bonds and at least one organic group is directly connected to a silicon atom. It is customary to also regard those compounds that connect organic groups with silicon atoms through oxygen, sulfur and nitrogen, etc., as organosilicon compounds. Organic silica gel has excellent properties such as temperature resistance, weather resistance, high flexibility, oil resistance, electrical insulation, biological inertness, fire resistance, and hydrophobicity.


2. Application of Silica Gel


Due to the excellent performance of silica gel, it is not only used as a special material for aviation, cutting-edge technology, and military technology, but also used in various sectors of the national economy. Its application range has been expanded to: construction, electronic and electrical, textiles, automobiles, machinery, Leather and paper, chemical and light industry, metal and paint, medicine and medical treatment, etc.


3. Application of silicone rubber cable


Silicone rubber cable is a dual-material cable. Due to the characteristics of cold resistance, high temperature resistance and aging resistance of silica gel, it is widely used in cables that are adaptable to harsh environments and made of molded silica gel as the main raw material. They are mainly used as external wrapping layer of cables and filling production.


Silicone rubber cable is widely used in rail transit, automobiles, medical, nuclear power, construction, household appliances, electric heating, heavy industry and other fields. With the vigorous development of rail transit and new energy automobile industries, silicone rubber cable has been widely used.


In new energy vehicles, silicone rubber cables can be connected to high-voltage batteries, electronic control units and motors; they can be used as internal connections for high-voltage equipment such as air conditioners and auxiliary heating; they can be used as internal connections for batteries.


4. The development trend of silicone rubber cables


With the development of the economy, the society's requirements for high environmental protection and low energy consumption are increasing, and the silicone rubber cable industry is also developing towards environmental protection, refinement, specialization and high pressure. It has become the goal of many companies to produce environmentally friendly, high-quality cables that meet the requirements.
