Vinyl Elastomer Compounds

Vinyl Elastomer Compounds

Two high-performance vinyl-jacketing compounds from Teknor Apex Company withstand the harsh cold, exposure to lubricants and other challenging conditions encountered by control and power cables within the nacelles high atop wind turbine towers.

Flexalloy 9609-80 is an 80 Shore A PVC-based elastomer that provides long-term UV resistance and exhibits a brittle point of -60C.

Apex N-56001 is a 76 Shore A blend of PVC and nitrile rubber that provides long-term low-temperature flexibility and oil resistance. It exhibits a brittle point of -54C.

Both compounds pass required tests for UV resistance, 60-day oil aging at 75C and flammability performance as specified in UL 1685-F4. The two compounds are rated at 105C for maximum continuous operating temperature.
