Aegis® H85WC01 Features & Benefits
Aegis® nylon jacket compounds are designed to provide protection from physical and chemical damage during installation and throughout the service life of a wire. When a nylon jacket is used to protect insulation, the thickness of the insulation can be reduced. The resulting smaller outside diameter allows for installation of more wires in a given size conduit.
Aegis® nylon jacket compounds are formulated to offer excellent processability, making them suitable for use on any manufacturing line. As part of a wire or cable construction, Aegis® nylon jacket compounds help enable wire and cable producers to attain UL certifications and markings for their products.
- Excellent protection from grease, oil and gasoline
- Abrasion, cut and impact resistance
- Lowest fuming during wire extrusion
- UL QMTT2 Listed (building wire applications)
- UL QMTM2 Listed (plenum cable applications)
Applications & Uses
This product is supplied in sealed containers and drying prior to processing is not required. However, higher moisture is the primary cause of processing issues. If drying becomes necessary, a dehumidifying or desiccant dryer operating at 70ºC (158ºF) is recommended. Drying time is dependent on moisture level.
