Thermoplastic Elastomer is widely used as an insulating material for wires and cables. SHONSIN Thermoplastic Elastomer TPE Insulated cables are test leads for medium thermal loads while maintaining their flexibility at low temperatures. TPE is a combination of plastic and rubber. TPE cable is a durable compound that can cope well with extreme temperatures. These characteristics allow TPE cable to be used in harsh environments.
TPE wire's ability to stretch to moderate elongations and return to its near original shape is what allows it to have a longer life span and better physical range when compared to other insulating materials. This is also the primary benefit of using TPE as wire insulation.
SHONSIN Cable's thermoplastic insulated cable has a distinctive blend of flexibility, toughness, and abrasion resistance for the parts that are exposed to harsh environments. Suitable for both extrusion and injection molding, these versatile materials can be used in wire and cable jacketing and insulation, electrical connectors and plugs, strain reliefs, and grommets. And if your application is very unique, we can work with you to develop a customized solution to meet your specific requirements.
There are other benefits to TPE cable. For example, TPE cables consume less energy to produce, can be colored easily by most dyes, and allow economical quality control. Also, TPE wire requires little to no compounding at all. You need not add any reinforcing agents, stabilizers, or cure systems. Because TPE wires can be molded, extruded, and reused like plastics, they have the potential to be recyclable.
TPE is a kind of thermoplastic insulation, which will melt when exposed to high temperature. And when this occurs, the possibility of a fire is very likely, which is very dangerous. Another disadvantage is general TPE wire is not fire resistant. VW-1 Standard TPE wire can be customized. But the price is double compared to general TPE wire.
TPE Wire more easily accumulates dirt which can make cleaning difficult compared to other electrical cables.
