Avient FireCon™ CPE 1240 UV RoHS NATURAL Polyethylene, Chlorinated (CPE)
Categories: Polymer; Thermoplastic; Polyethylene (PE)

Material Notes: An excellent choice for low-voltage power-and-cable control cables, this RoHS compliant filled, flexible thermoplastic CPE jacketing compound offers wire and cable manufacturers the advantages of thermoplastic extrusion processing without the need to invest in continuous vulcanization (CV) equipment. CPE 1240 UV RoHS Natural is excellent for larger-diameter cable. This compound passes testing for heat/shock resistance, which requires cable to withstand being bent and twisted without cracking or showing stress. Good moisture, oil, and electrical properties. Applications include power-and-control cable for fossil-fuel and co-generation plants.

Note: Natural - Typical processing temperatures range between 290°-330°F depending upon screw design. Contact Technical Service for recommendation for specific equipment. Note: Pre-drying is recommended for 4 hours at 175°-185°F. NOTE: Typical Properties of Molded Slab (0.075); Not to be Construed as Specifications.
