Want to keep this datasheet? Save it now in your required format


FLEX NORYL™ WCD895 resin is a flexible, non-reinforced extrudable blend of Polyphenylene Ether (PPE) + Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE). This material contains non-halogenated flame retardant and performance capable of meeting UL 1581 VW-1 requirement and 80C end use temperature rating as defined by UL 1581. FLEX NORYL WCD895 resin is intended for evaluation wire and cable jacketing applications. It has a Shore A Hardness reading of 89 and exhibits superior thermal stability, very low water absorption, robust tensile strength, tensile elongation, and low specific gravity. Processing is typically conducted on standard extrusion equipment, and UL 1581 testing is conducted on 2.0mm wire with 0.12mm X 20 stranded copper conductor.
