EPR Thermoset Cable

Solutions for Extreme Temperatures

NEW from Lake Cable

EPR Thermoset Cable Solutions for Extreme Temperatures

When your application exposes your cables to extreme temperature, protect against failure with Lake Cable’s new ethylene propylene rubber (EPR) thermoset cables that are engineered to perform in temperatures from 125°C down to -75°C. The durable material passes both the -60˚C cold-bend and -50˚C cold-impact tests with no cracks or abrasions. This new EPR thermoset will tolerate freezing conditions and contact with weld slag/splatter, exposure to ovens, engines and furnace temperatures. Our curing process facilitates custom- and short-minimum production runs.

Solutions to fit your application-specific requirements:

  • Industrial Control & Communication: CANopen, Ethernet, Fieldbus
  • Welding Cable: Thermoset jacket impervious to molten weld slag/splatter
  • Glass Manufacturing & Industrial Ovens: Thermoset jacket can withstand incidental contact without melting
  • Automotive:
    • SAE J1127 Low Voltage Battery Cable
    • SAE J2501 Multicore Sheathed Cables
    • CANbus - SAE J1939-11 and SAE J1939-11-15 XLPE wire insulation & XL-EPR jacket
