Flame Retardant Olefins with good electrical properties
The GPE series are flame retardant olefin compounds designed to meet Category 5+ electrical properties in plenum data cables. Thermoplastic olefin primarily used in the wire & cable, battery and automotive markets. Applications range from flame retardant polyethylene based materials for the wire & cable market, flame retardant polypropylene for the battery market (UL 94 V0 & V2), interior & exterior paint applications for the automotive market. Various fillers and additives are also incorporated to meet required specifications by material & design engineers. For example, TPO compounds can be color matched with UV additives to pass OEM accelerate weathering and two-year outdoor weathering tests.
