Wire & Cable

For premium wire and cable products, Elastollan offers a variety of outstanding properties. Among them are its durability, flexibility through a wide temperature range and excellent moisture resistance. Elastollan also has unique characteristics for more specialized uses, such as outstanding abrasion resistance and coil-retention for coiled cable products. Further, Elastollan formulations can be adjusted by leveraging BASF’s expertise in the chemical industry:

  • Because it is available in both polyether- and polyester-based forms, Elastollan can be formulated for improved microbial resistance and resistance to weak acids/bases, oils/solvents, weather (UV), and low or high temperatures.
  • It can also be made with flame-retardant qualities using both proprietary halogenated and non-halogenated additives.
  • It has the ability to meet FDA and other certifications.

Automotive ABS Cables

Companies can stop looking for a TPU that excels in automotive ABS cables; Elastollan has it all, including low-temperature flexibility, long-term flexibility, abrasion/cut/tear resistance, hydrolytic stability, microbial resistance and oil/fuel resistance.

Automotive Sensor Cables

High-quality automotive sensor cables require Elastollan properties such as abrasion/tear/cut resistance, long-term flexibility, low-temperature flexibility, microbial resistance, hydrolytic stability, oil/fuel resistance, resistance to weathering and color stability.

Cable Jacketing

Superior cable jacketing requires superior Elastollan qualities that include long-term flexibility, low-temperature flexibility, hydrolytic stability, good electric properties and microbial resistance. Flame-retardant and halogen-free Elastollan grades are particularly well suited for high-performance cable uses.

Cable Ties

Because Elastollan is notable for its elastic memory and excellent abrasion/cut/tear resistance, it is particularly well suited for use in cable ties.

Flame Retardant Mining Cables

In addition to its flame-retarding characteristics, Elastollan also imparts flex-fatigue resistance, long-term flexibility and low-temperature flexibility to flame retardant mining cables.

Flat Flex Cables

Elastollan characteristics such as long-term flexibility, low-temperature flexibility, hydrolytic stability, good electric properties and microbial resistance all help in the manufacturing of first-class flex cables.

Land Seismic Cables

Elastollan can shake things up by being used to manufacture land seismic cables that stand out in terms high puncture resistance, long-term and low-temperature flexibility, microbial resistance, hydrolytic stability, resistance to weathering and color stability.

Mining Cables (MSHA,UL)

When made from Elastollan, mining cables can be certified by both MSHA and UL. In addition, they benefit from flex-fatigue resistance, long-term and low-temperature flexibility, and hydrolytic stability.

Oil Exploration Cables

Companies searching for the right material for oil exploration cables can rely on Elastollan for high puncture resistance, long-term flexibility, low-temperature flexibility, microbial resistance, hydrolytic stability, resistance to weathering and color stability.

Over-Molded Connectors & Components

For outstanding results in the production of over-molded connectors, Elastollan offers tight seals, good adhesion to substrates, hydrolytic resistance, strain reliefs, microbial resistance and resistance to oil.

Robot Cables

Imparting good tear/cut/abrasion resistance, long-term flexibility, low-temperature flexibility, microbial resistance, hydrolytic stability, oil/fuel resistance, resistance to weathering and color stability, Elastollan is an excellent selection for making robot cables.

Snow Cables

Getting a good grip on snow cable manufacturing is simple with Elastollan, which supplies low-temperature flexibility, hydrolytic stability, high elasticity, high tensile strength, microbial resistance and abrasion/cut/tear resistance.
