Vistalon™ EPDM adds flexibility for medium voltage power distribution cables

Medium voltage power cables mounted along the sides of an underground utility distribution tunnel

Vistalon EPDM rubber adds flexibility to power distribution cables to support easy installation in even the most challenging conditions. Backed by a successful 40-year track record in power distribution cables, Vistalon EPDM is a good choice for underground infrastructure rehabilitation and new construction.

Vistalon EPDM exhibits:

  • Excellent flexibility to ease installation in narrow or winding pathways even in cold conditions
  • Inherent water-treeing resistance for long service life
  • Excellent wet electrical properties
  • Fast cure rates for higher line speeds

With these characteristics, Vistalon EPDM is well suited for use in:

  • Medium-and low-voltage insulation for power cables
  • Halogen-free cable jackets
  • Molded connectors
  • Cable fillers

For molded underground power distribution connectors, also consider Santoprene™ thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs), which combine the performance properties of thermoset rubber with the processing ease of plastic. The result is design flexibility and process efficiency. With a wide service temperature range, easy colorability and chemical, ozone and sunlight resistance, Santoprene TPVs offer excellent long-term performance and durability.
