What effect does the cable sheath have on the PVC Sheath Flexible Cable ?

The sheath is the “skin” of the wire and cable and the appearance that people look directly at. It must be smooth and round, uniform in color, not eccentric, not damaged, free of impurities, free of bubbles, and not flattened, twisted, etc., except In addition to being unsightly, the thickness of the sheath also has a certain impact on the quality of H05VV-F H03VV-F PVC Insulated cable.

  1. Reduce service life
    After the cable is laid, it will be energized for a long time, which will generate heat. The allowable working temperature of the conductor is 70℃. The long-term use temperature of polyvinyl chloride should not exceed 65℃. If it is summer, the working temperature will rise, and these temperatures will pass outside. When the sheath is emitted, the thickness of the sheath increases, and the heat energy is difficult to dissipate, which will affect the service life of the cable. Due to the heat of PVC, the insulation layer will undergo a series of physical and chemical changes and lose its original excellent performance. , Resulting in a significant decrease in insulation performance, and even a short circuit, affecting the normal operation of the unit.
  2. Material performance defects
    The performance of the material is not reflected by the thickness. According to the requirements of the GB8815-2002 standard, if one of its indicators does not meet the standard, the flame-retardant PVC material, its oxygen index is lower than 30.
  1. There are problems with the cable structure
    Conductor, insulation layer, and braid density are strictly controlled in accordance with the requirements of the standard. If the outer diameter of the cable is normal but the sheath is too thick, it is very likely that other structures are cutting corners.
  2. Increase the difficulty of cable laying
    At present, cable laying is mainly based on bridges or pipes. Many companies are implementing tight cable requirements and small outer diameters. There can be gaps during the laying process to dissipate heat and ensure that the outer sheath of PVC cable is not damaged. Otherwise, the construction unit and Cable laying brings difficulties.
    To sum up, the thickness of the sheath should be strictly controlled in accordance with the standard, which not only saves resources, reduces material consumption, and increases profits for the enterprise, but also ensures the quality of the cable and creates high-quality and low-cost products.
