Product and Supplier Offerings
We can provide resins and compounds for your wire and cable application. Use the chart below to find the products and suppliers that meet your needs.
Additives, Polymer Modifiers
Complement your products, improve end-use attributes, and meet various specification and testing requirements whether you are formulating with FR, UV, foaming agent, odor masking, siloxane or need a desiccant for material drying.
Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE)
CPE compounds have excellent physical and mechanical properties including oil and chemical resistance. Product offerings include CPE/vinyl blends, TPO based CPE and CPE for radiation cross-linking.
We can supply color concentrates suitable for many polymer carriers and black masterbatches that are designed specifically for wire and cable applications.
Low-Smoke Zero Halogen Compounds (LSZH)
Non-halogenated thermoplastic compounds ideal for flame retardant jacketing and insulation applications.
Nylon Extrusion Resin
Extrusion grade PA6 for wire & cable jacketing designed to meet requirements for THHN, THWN and TFFN constructions and other applications where toughness and abrasion resistance are important.
Plenum & Riser Compounds
Highly flame retardant compounds designed to pass FT4, riser and plenum flame testing requirements.
Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT)
For inelectronic, electrical, communications, fiber optic, and automotive applications where low-warpage, good chemical resistance, excellent mechanical strength and low water absorption rates are key.
Ideal for insulation and jacketing, thermoplastic and cross linkable compounds. Products are widely used in automotive, telecommunications, low-voltage and fiber optic applications.
Polyvinyl Chloride Compounds (PVC)
Product development collaboration and CSA/UL rated commercial compounds are available for various automotive, general purpose extrusion, insulation, jacketing molding, low-smoke and telecommunication applications.
Designed to be flexible, weather resistant, ozone resistant and withstand low temperature. Ideal for jacketing, connector molding and automotive applications.
Can support required benefits including high heat, low temperature, superior flexibility, and more.
Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE)
Beneficial for applications that require flexibility, low temperature and oil resistance such as jacketing applications used in wind turbine, robotic cables, and other end uses.
Thermoplastic Urethanes (TPU) Compounds
Suitable for extrusion applications where flexibility and durability are critical to application requirements.
Thermoplastic Vulcanizates (TPV)
High performance elastomers that combine ease of processing.
