Polyurethane cable, abbreviated as PUR cable, is halogen-free, flame resistant and offer increased mechanical and chemical resistance, making the cables suitable for harsh environments. In addition to being abrasion resistant, Polyurethane limits the growth of bacteria and microbes which makes the sheathing material particularly suited to use in the food & beverage industry, clean rooms, and complying with the hygiene requirements of production lines.
The use of Polyurethane as a sheathing material also maintains the cable's flexibility, with many of the PUR cables having applications requiring frequent or constant flexing, such as drag cable and power chain cable, automotive cable and for control cables for robotics and machine tooling. Polyurethane is not suitable for insulation materials, a different low smoke zero halogen compound would be required but there remain benefits of using PUR over PVC and even tough rubber sheathing. In terms of temperature range, PUR cable can operate between -40°C and +125°C, although the individual cable technical specifications should always be referred to for precise upper and lower limits.
Biadicable mainly supplies PUR sheathed automotive cables for the ABS system and EBS system of commercial vehicles. Any inquiry on automotive cable please feel free to contact us via email@example.com.
