AES announces new TPVs for outdoor electrical applications

ExxonMobil Chemical Co : 20 October, 2004  (New Product)
Advanced Elastomer Systems (AES), an affiliate of ExxonMobil Chemical Co, has introduced new Santoprene thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) for outdoor electrical applications.
Advanced Elastomer Systems (AES), an affiliate of ExxonMobil Chemical Co, has introduced new Santoprene thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) for outdoor electrical applications.

This series of TPVs, claimed to be the first of their kind in the market place, use proprietary technology developed by AES and ExxonMobil Chemical Co to achieve wet electrical stability with no lead-based chemicals added to the materials. They meet stringent new regulations worldwide aimed at reducing or eliminating lead content in products and materials.

These Santoprene TPVs meet current and prospective regulations, including Directive 200/53/EC, European End of Life Vehicle (ELV), Restriction on Hazardous Substances (RoHS), and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE); and Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know (EPCRA) and Proposition 65, California, Consent Judgment for wire and cable manufacturers, in the USA.

'The new Santoprene TPV product line is the latest example of our commitment to provide to the market place environmentally sensitive product solutions,' said Lynell Maenza, Global Industrial Manager, AES. 'This product also demonstrates our ability, as a global technology leader, to develop meaningful technologies that address local and regional regulations.'

Primarily for extruded applications, the new Santoprene TPV grades are UL-listed. They are suited for wet electrical uses in wire and cable applications including flexible cords, ignition and battery cables, marine and outdoor construction wiring and submersible pump cable. They are offered as flame-retardant and non-flame-retardant grades, in 45 and 87 Shore A durometers.

In addition to wet electrical stability, the grades possess good dielectric strength, low-temperature flexibility and chemical resistance. They are also recyclable.

With head offices in Akron, Ohio, AES is an affiliate of ExxonMobil Chemical Co, a division of Exxon Mobil Corp. AES is the worldwide leader in engineered TPVs, materials with the performance and aesthetics of rubber, and the processing ease of plastic. The company's flagship product Santoprene TPV is a recyclable elastomer commonly used in the appliance, automotive, construction, consumer goods, electrical, fluid delivery, grips, medical and packaging industries.
