Featured applications

AC Cables

Electronics | Desktops / PCs

AC UL jacket is for the American standard markets, whereas the AC EU jacket is suitable for (low smoke) EU markets. The AC insulation solutions are the most robust in class. The AC Power Plug utilizes the optimum performance of the jacket materials with injection molding characteristics.

DC Cables

Electronics | Desktops / PCs

DC Cables are generally used for standard electronics charging systems, like adapters. The latest designs can also be used for USB-C charging, leading to much thinner cables than AC with similar charging and safety characteristics.

The flexible solution

Thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) with high temperature resistance, good processability and excellent elastic behavior. Arnitel belongs to the TPE subcategory of thermoplastic copolyesters (TPC):

  • Broad range of hardnesses 
  • High temperature resistance within the TPE family
