PVC Wire and Cable
PVC has long been used as sheathing for cables and is a vital component of the Australian power cable market. Frequently used in wire and cable insulation and jacketing, as well as in rigid, non-metallic conduit and cable management systems, the benefits of using PVC include:
- Low conductivity
- Cost effectiveness, and
- Flame retardancy.
Suitable for both commercial and domestic buildings, PVC cables are used in both electrical and telecommunication applications.
PVC cable insulation can be recycled at the end of its useful life and a small quantity is recovered in Australia each year and recycled into new products (non-wire and cable) products.
