Parallel to the growth of Electric Vehicles (EV) and the focus on finding more sustainable alternatives, Lubrizol’s technical experts have developed a range of material solutions specifically for EV charging system cables. ESTANE® EV TPUs are the result of such work and are commercially available resins. These are non-halogenated flame retardant materials that have been formulated to meet the most relevant industry standards.
ESTANE EV TPUs with low toxicity/smoke and showing an advantage in conductivity (<35 µS/mm) are compliant with the following cable industry standards: IEC 62893 and EN 50620. ESTANE polymers for EVs provide a durable, long-lasting effect even on cables requiring very good aesthetics (e.g., no whitening). Other key performance benefits include low volatiles, easy processability and low or no odor.
