Vinyl offers a unique combination of properties that make it a material of choice in the electrical market, including:
Superior Fire Performance
Vinyl electrical products play a key role in preventing fires from starting and in limiting the amount of damage a fire can do, once it starts. PVC burns very slowly, which prevents the fire from spreading and keeps smoke levels low.
Easy, Economical Installation
Installing PVC electrical systems over metallic systems can mean a real cost savings to any project. In fact, a 1990 study conducted by IFT Technical Services found that installation of PVC non-metallic electrical tubing saves between 30 and 33 percent in labour and installation costs than the comparable metallic system.
Durability in All Conditions
Vinyl is resistant to chemicals, corrosion, abrasion, UV degradation, extreme temperature, weather variations and general wear, keeping maintenance costs low.
Vinyl can be easily formulated to meet the requirements of nearly any application. It provides superior flexibility, colourability, formulation and design versatility, and good dielectric behaviour.
