Polyurethane (PUR) is a halogen-free and self-extinguishing thermoplastic polymer with high memory properties. This material is notch, abrasion, oil and ozone resistant as well as flexible particularly in colder temperatures. Ideal for continuous flexing applications in cable carrier. For other jacket types, see Types of Cable Jackets.
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a widely used synthetic plastic polymer for both cable jackets and insulation. Relatively inexpensive with good resistance to oils, moisture, sunlight, heat abrasion and weathering. Flame retardant and ideal for direct burial.
Machine Tool Wire, denoted as “MTW” is a listing from UL for the wiring of general purpose curcuits, machine tools and internal wiring of control panels covered under UL standard 1063. To read more about Machine Tool Wire (MTW), see Overview of Machine Tool Wire (MTW)?
