For premium wire and cable products, Elastollan offers a variety of outstanding properties. Among them are its durability, flexibility through a wide temperature range and excellent moisture resistance. Elastollan also has unique characteristics for more specialized uses, such as outstanding abrasion resistance and coil-retention for coiled cable products. Further, Elastollan formulations can be adjusted by leveraging BASF’s expertise in the chemical industry:
- Because it is available in both polyether- and polyester-based forms, Elastollan can be formulated for improved microbial resistance and resistance to weak acids/bases, oils/solvents, weather (UV), and low or high temperatures.
- It can also be made with flame-retardant qualities using both proprietary halogenated and non-halogenated additives.
- It has the ability to meet FDA and other certifications.
Snow CablesGetting a good grip on snow cable manufacturing is simple with Elastollan, which supplies low-temperature flexibility, hydrolytic stability, high elasticity, high tensile strength, microbial resistance and abrasion/cut/tear resistance.
Over-Molded Connectors & ComponentsFor outstanding results in the production of over-molded connectors, Elastollan offers tight seals, good adhesion to substrates, hydrolytic resistance, strain reliefs, microbial resistance and resistance to oil.
Mining Cables (MSHA,UL)When made from Elastollan, mining cables can be certified by both MSHA and UL. In addition, they benefit from flex-fatigue resistance, long-term and low-temperature flexibility, and hydrolytic stability.
