The PVC cable compounds are normally manufactured by processing the compositions of polyvinylchloride that are produced as granules. The process involves application of stabilizers, modifiers and plasticizers. PVC cable compounds are designed to meet cable specifications for being flame retardant and being competitive in price. These cables have high mechanical strength and are able to resist water. The compounds have high thermal resistance to low temperatures. PVC cable compounds are used in the cable and conductor industry to make protective wire and cable insulation.
