Application of thermo-plastic elestomers to electric wires

Journal Article:

Abstract

Thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) is used in only 1% of the total rubber and plastics in electric cable and wire fields. This report describes on the legal regulations, practical applications, and the future problems. Japanese regulation on the power cable is the use of specified materials only, whereas in Europe and USA the function of the material is given a priority. For the communication cable and for the material selection of electronic and household wires, the priority of selection is the function of the material. Merits of TPE in use are the specialty properties unknown in the conventional materials, non-necessity of crosslinking, and the high productivity. PE is mainly used for the communication cable, PE and PVC for sheath. Telefone cord is the biggest outlet of TPE presently. Other applications are found in connection cable between the OA equipments, shield wire, and insulation cables for robots, aeroplanes, and ocean development units, etc.. For more expansion of applications, balance between the flexibility and various properties, water resistance and price should be improved. (7 figs, 3 tabs, 3 refs)
