PVC Wire & Cable

PVC Wire & Cable

PVC has long been used as sheathing for cables and is a vital component of the Australian power cable market. Suitable for both commercial and domestic buildings, PVC cables are used in both electrical and telecommunication applications.

Benefits of using PVC for sheathing and insulation include:

  • Low conductivity
  • Durability
  • Cost effectiveness, and
  • Flame retardancy.

PVC cable insulation can be recycled at the end of its useful life and a small quantity is recovered in Australia each year. The recyclate is made into new products, both here and overseas, including the inner core in hoses, industrial flooring and mud flaps.
