Escorene™ Ultra EVA copolymer resins for wire and cable and cabling systems

Large assortment of wire and cable

High-viscosity Escorene Ultra ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) copolymer resins offer flexibility, toughness and the ability to accept high filler levels for wire and cable applications. That makes them especially suitable for halogen-free, flame retardant (HFFR) compounds.

These EVA copolymer resins can also meet the needs of electrical applications requiring improved processability, increased resistance to environmental stress cracking and greater heat resistance. Typical examples include thermoplastic blends with polyethylene for black outer jacketing, semi-conductive compounds, HFFR formulations and heat-resistant cross-linkable compounds.

HFFR cable materials continue to be a fast-growing market, reflecting factors such as regulations for lower smoke emissions, low fire propagation and an increasing awareness of public safety issues. HFFR cable is used in locations requiring maximum protection against fire and fire damage, including:

  • Public buildings
  • Computer and telephone centers
  • Industrial centers
  • Public transportation systems

In cross-linkable compounds used for power cables or other specialized applications where fast cure and increased production rates are needed, Escorene Ultra EVA copolymer resins offer improved resistance to solvents and chemicals in addition to accepting high filler loadings and flame-retardant materials.
