From high to low
From refrigerators and ovens to sandwich makers, HT & LT wiring is essential. Now we can offer a viable alternative to traditional materials in the form of Arnitel® C – a copolyester elastomer.
It’s proven to perform long-term at 150 degrees C for HT wiring and 105 degrees C for LT wiring, meeting appliance wiring standards UL/CSA and AWM 758; as well as offering a VW-1 flame rating.
In fact, we’ve conducted extensive cable tests demonstrating the performance of Arnitel C in various UL 758/1581 categories, including tensile strength, elongation at break and flame retardance.
And importantly, it’s a sustainable solution. It’s recyclable and it’s plasticizer free – providing a major advantage as carbon footprint moves higher up the global agenda.
How does it compare?
The Arnitel solution for HT & LT wiring can also realize major savings: A 50% reduction compared to FEP/ETFE; and a 30% reduction against SR – one major reason for this being that there is no needs for special extruders. Furthermore you can reduce weight by anywhere from 15 to 30%
Meanwhile the product itself looks and feels better. Arnitel C has a good tactile quality, it’s slim, flexible, and has excellent molding adhesion.
In short, we believe it’s the future for high temperature appliance wire solutions.
