Common materials used in cable extrusion include:

  • Copper: Widely used for its excellent electrical conductivity.
  • PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride): A versatile polymer used for insulation and jacketing due to its durability and flexibility.
  • PE (Polyethylene): Known for its good insulation properties and resistance to moisture.
  • XLPE (Cross-Linked Polyethylene): Offers superior thermal and electrical properties, making it ideal for high-performance cables. These materials must be of high purity and specific formulations to ensure the desired cable characteristics and performance.
