Main advantages of promyde PA for THHN, THWN and TFFN cables

  • Internal and external wiring: Promyde is adaptable for both internal and external wiring, catering to indoor and outdoor use with diverse performance requirements, even in high-pressure and extreme temperature environments, as well as stationary and moving mechanical settings.
  • UV PROTECTION: Cables with external polyamide jacketing exposed to natural light benefit from increased durability with Promyde B33 L UV HS, UL83 Certified.
  • Precise Diameter: During the extrusion process, Promyde PA6 ensures consistent wire thickness, even in critical processes like micro and millimeter extrusions.
  • High Thermal Resistance: PA exhibits excellent thermal resistance, preventing thermal deformation and allowing cables to function effectively across a wide temperature range.
  • Heat resistance properties: With a melting temperature of 220°C and excellent long-term high-temperature performance, PA 6 is an optimal choice for low-voltage cable sheathing.
  • Flame Retardance: Promyde PA exhibits flame retardant properties, enhancing cable safety in fire or high-temperature scenarios.
  • Reduced Coat Thickness: Thanks to its exceptional mechanical properties, Promyde PA6 grades for cable jacketing can be extruded with reduced thickness while maintaining insulation performance. This enables more wires in a conduit or a higher copper content in a single wire.
  • Flexible properties: Promyde PA6’s flexibility allows cables to bend and adapt to various installation scenarios without compromising their structural integrity, making it ideal for tight spaces and complex cable routing.
  • Chemical Resistance: PA’s resistance to chemicals and oils ensures that cable jackets remain protected and functional, even in chemically challenging environments.
  • Self-lubrication properties: Promyde PA6’s self-lubricating properties facilitate the installation of wires, simplifying the cable installation process.

Resistance in extreme conditions

  • Tensile strength at extreme temperatures.
  • Thermal stability for optimal performance in motion and under temperature fluctuations.
  • Suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
  •  Extended durability under UV light ( UL83 Certified).
Applications of PA Cable Jacketing
  • Telecommunications: PA jacketed cables are commonly used in the telecommunications industry, providing robust protection for data transmission cables, fiber optics, and more.

  • Automotive: In vehicles, PA cable jacketing plays a vital role in ensuring the reliable operation of various electrical systems

  • Industrial Settings and construction: Industrial cables benefit from PA jacketing due to its resistance to harsh chemicals, extreme temperatures and mechanical stress,.
