Industries rely on cables to power their equipment. Often, it is the case that the average rubber cable commonly found in homes and retail spaces is not enough for the heavy-duty jobs that many industries do. This is where neoprene cables come in.
When heavy duty cabling is required neoprene cables are a better alternative to use. Neoprene cables are affordable and readily available. They come in various sizes so they can be used in almost any application. The material’s durability and resistance to the elements make it a good investment.
Neoprene can withstand degradation better than other natural or synthetic rubber. It is highly resistant to abrasions and scratches and does not easily react with chemicals. This inertness makes it ideal for applications in the petrochemical and manufacturing industries.
Neoprene cables can also be used for many types of mobile electrical equipment. Using substandard cables that are easily worn and cannot keep up with the standards of daily use can be very risky, especially for heavy-duty industries such as the marine and industrial sectors.
Resistant to a lot of elements
The physical and chemical properties of neoprene make it resistant to many elements. Neoprene will not physically degrade when subjected to high temperatures. When the temperature does reach a level high enough to degrade neoprene, the material will not melt nor stretch but will harden instead.
Neoprene is not just effective in high temperatures but also in low temperatures. It can maintain its flexibility even when subjected to cold temperatures. Neoprene cables can be safely used at much lower temperatures compared to PVC cables.
The material is also water-resistant, which makes it perfect for underwater applications. It is able to resist a number of elements, including oxidation, sunlight, sand, snow and dust.
Such resistance makes neoprene cables the ideal material to be used as an energy conduit towards electrode supports. For control and communication, it can be used for smooth signal transmission in remote and direct-controlled machine tools.
Provides cushioning and protection
Depending on the use, neoprene provides appropriate cushioning and protection for the inside material of the cable. Whether they will be used for relatively light jobs such as low voltage installations indoors and outdoors to jobs that will expose them to high mechanical strain, these cables can do the job without breaking.
Neoprene cables are used for cable winding reels, including cranes, conveyors and mining equipment.
