Syncure Solar, for photovoltaic (PV) wire and cable, is a UV-resistant, cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE)

Syncure Solar, for photovoltaic (PV) wire and cable, is a UV-resistant, cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE). The material provides high-performance, UL 4703 and VW 1-compliance in one material, eliminating the need for two separate insulation and jacketing formulations. It also improves efficiency, complies with RoHS requirements, and meets sustainability goals.

Syncure Solar promotes the use of alternative energy by simplifying the wiring of PV systems. It can be used seamlessly from the outside to the inside of a building in underground service-entrance applications, eliminating the need for a junction between interior and exterior wiring or cabling.

The material requires only one pass through the extruder (versus the industry norm of two) for simplified logistics, reduced cycle time, and overall systems cost reduction. The combined insulation and jacketing allows for a thinner coating (60 versus the typical 75 mil). Syncure Solar comes in natural and black.
