PVC elastomers take on EV charging challenge

07/05/2012

Two new PVC elastomer compounds from Teknor Apex Company (Pawtucket, RI) reportedly provide manufacturers of charger cable for electric vehicles (EVs) with more cost-effective alternatives to other elastomers in both insulation and jacketing.

The new compounds are Flexalloy 89504-90, a 90 Shore A formulation for insulation, and Flexalloy 9610-78 for jacketing, with Shore A hardness of 78. The materials exhibit brittle points of -46 and -38ºC, respectively, and are both rated for a maximum continuous operating temperature of 105ºC.
