wire & cable

ingredients to help keep us connected

Wire & cable systems hold immense value in the energy & electronics sectors, where they play a crucial role in powering the modern world and facilitating seamless connectivity. In the energy realm, wire and cable solutions ensure efficient transmission and distribution of electrical power, minimizing losses and maintaining the stability of the electrical grid. They enable the integration of renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind, into the power infrastructure, fostering the transition towards a sustainable future. Wire & cable systems are essential in electronics and communication, enabling the transfer of data, signals, and power within electronic circuits. From telecommunications networks to computer systems, wire & cable solutions ensure reliable data transmission, facilitating communication, control, and functionality.

plasticizers wire and cable

Wire & cable manufacturing is a complex process that requires careful consideration of various factors to ensure optimal performance, flexibility, and longevity of the final product. Plasticizers play a vital role, offering immense value in enhancing the properties of wire & cable materials. Plasticizers are additives that are incorporated into wire & cable materials to enhance their flexibility, durability, and overall processability. They are crucial components that enable the production of high-quality wires & cables that meet the stringent requirements of various industries.

citrate-based ester, plasticizer

Citrate-based esters are widely used as plasticizers in the production of wire and cable insulation and sheathing materials. These esters are derived from citric acid, a natural and renewable resource, making them environmentally friendly alternatives to traditional phthalate plasticizers. Citroflex™ Plasticizer enhances the flexibility of polymers used in wire and cable coverings, such as PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and other plastic compounds. The addition of these plasticizers reduces the hardness and rigidity of the plastic, making it easier to handle and install. Flexible cables are less likely to break or crack under mechanical stress, thus improving their durability.


Wire & cable manufacturing is a complex process that demands high-performance materials to ensure optimal functionality and reliability. Among the essential components used in this industry, encapsulants stand out as valuable solutions that provide exceptional protection and insulation. Encapsulants are specialized chemical compounds used to encapsulate and protect wire & cable components from environmental factors, moisture, mechanical stress, and other potential sources of damage. They form a protective layer that enhances the overall performance and longevity of wires & cables.

castor-based polyurethane, encapsulant

Castor-based polyurethanes as encapsulants in wire and cable applications offer a blend of environmental friendliness, excellent material properties, and versatility. These benefits make them particularly suitable for modern cable designs that require durability, performance, and sustainability. The properties of D-Encapsulant, a castor-based polyurethane, can be adjusted by modifying their chemical composition or by blending with other materials. This adaptability allows manufacturers to tailor the encapsulant properties specific to the needs of different cable designs and applications.

fiber optic cable waterproofing
infrastructure encapsulant for underwater cables

There are approximately 1.3 million kilometers of submarine cable in service globally. Submarine cables connect the continents through data transmission, and support international telecommunications traffic for business, consumers, and governments. These underwater cables require waterproofing to protect their critical components. D-Encapsulant is a two-component polyurethane coating system with very low viscosity that allows for the filling of gaps within the wire system. This encapsulant permits a long open time and has a unique combination of low tear and superior tensile strength with a relatively high elongation, resulting in a longer work lifeline.
