General Rubber Plastic Wire Structural Characteristics

Requirements of General rubber plastic wire:
1. Scope of application: connection and internal installation of power, lighting, electrical equipment, instrumentation and telecommunication equipment with AC rated voltage of 450/750V low voltage cable and below.
2. Laying occasions and methods: indoor open laying and communication channels, along the wall or overhead laying in tunnels; outdoor overhead laying, laying through iron pipes or plastic pipes, electrical equipment, meters and radio installations, all fixed laying; plastic The sheathed wire can be directly buried in the soil.
3. General requirements: economical and durable, simple structure.
4. Special requirements:
1) When laying outdoors, due to the influence of sunlight, rain and freezing conditions, it is required to be resistant to the atmosphere, especially sunlight aging; cold resistance requirements are required in severe cold areas;

2) In use, it is easy to be damaged by external force or flammable, and it should be worn in the occasions where it is in contact with oil. When the pipe is worn, the wire is subject to greater tension and may be scratched, so lubrication measures should be taken;
3) When used internally for electrical equipment, when the installation location is small, it should have a certain degree of flexibility, and require clear color separation of the insulated wire core, and should be matched with the corresponding connector terminals and plugs to make the connection convenient and reliable; for occasions with electromagnetic protection requirements , Shielded wires should be used;

4) For high ambient temperature occasions, sheathed cables should be used; for special high temperature occasions, heat-resistant cables should be used.

Structural features
1. Conductive core: when used for internal installation of power, lighting and electrical equipment, copper core is preferred. For large cross-section wires, it is better to use compact core; bare conductors for fixed installation generally adopt category 1 or category 2 conductor structure .
2. Insulation: Insulation materials generally use natural styrene-butadiene rubber, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) cable, polyethylene, and nitrile polyvinyl chloride compound; heat-resistant wires use polyvinyl chloride with a temperature resistance of 90°C.
3. Sheath: There are generally five types of sheath materials: polyvinyl chloride, cold-resistant polyvinyl chloride, anti-termite polyvinyl chloride, black polyethylene, and neoprene rubber.


Especially cold-resistant and outdoor overhead laying should use black polyethylene and neoprene sheathed wires.
In environments with external forces, corrosion, humidity, etc., rubber or plastic sheathed wires can be used.
