Hand inserting different colored flexible internet cables into wall jacks

Exact plastomers are an excellent blend partner for polyethylene and ethylene vinyl acetate in flexible, halogen-free formulations.

When used in combination with other polymers, Exact plastomers can:

  • Increase flexibility in cross-linked polyethylene compounds
  • Provide long-term electrical insulation

Other elastomeric solutions
Vistamaxx™ propylene-based elastomers partner well in polyolefin blends and are a good option for highly flexible electrical applications with halogen-free requirements. Santoprene™ thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) combine the performance properties of thermoset rubber with the processing ease of plastic and offer compliance with a range of electrical industry standards.
