Can I install copper cables in an area where they will be exposed to chemicals?

February 4, 2020

Chemicals can degrade the cable jacket material, depending on both the jacket material and the chemical. Before choosing a cable with a standard jacket material in areas where chemicals are present, contact Superior Essex at 800.551.8948 for alternative jacketing options that are resistant to the specific chemical(s) in question.

For example, a jacket made of PVDF (fluoropolymer) or nylon (polyamide) will impart specific resistance to a number of classes of chemical compounds compared to standard materials of which cables are typically made.
