How PVC Installation Material Yields Smaller, Lighter and More Sustainable Cables
A new alternative wire insulation to PVC offers better performance and significantly less environmental impact. Although PVC insulation is a mainstay of the wire and cable industry due to its mechanical and electrical properties and its low cost, it presents environmental issues due to its halogen content. Halogens are elements such as fluorine, chlorine, bromine and iodine that are highly reactive and can be harmful to people and animals. This white paper discusses how this new installation material yields smaller, lighter and more sustainable cables.
