Molded Cable Assemblies: Materials in High-Temperature Applications

Many applications require equipment rated for sustained performance at elevated temperatures. The exact performance attributes required vary by application, but typically range from 60 degrees Celsius (140 degrees Fahrenheit) to 260 degrees Celsius (500 degrees Fahrenheit). Some applications expose the connector assembly directly to a flame for a specified period of time, such as firefighter wearables that must survive high heat.

Typically, resin choices have been limited to select families, but recently resin manufacturers have started to formulate more common resins like TPU to survive in higher temperatures as well.
