Some of the changes to cable construction that widen the operating temperature range can compromise the cable’s electrical or mechanical properties. Silicone and cross-linked polyolefins do a good job striking that balance. Here’s why. First, both types of materials can dramatically widen the continuous use temperature range of control cables. Second, With the most advanced cable technology, the additional thermal performance won’t affect the electrical properties of the cable at all, and any effects on mechanical properties will be minor or even advantageous.
