Elastollan® 1176A10FR and 1188A10FR
BASF Launches New Solutions for EV Charging Cables

Increasing popularity of Electric Vehicles (EV) is driving demand for charging infrastructure at home and on the road. This means that EV Charging Cables need to withstand harsh environmental conditions and be rugged enough to hold up over time.

Wire and Cable producers know the challenge is having a cable jacketing with low conductivity and without additives that bloom with outdoor weathering. The solution to these challenges is a cable jacketing material that has excellent hydrolysis resistance and abrasion toughness, while having low conductivity and excellent long-term weatherability.

In response to these challenges, BASF has developed two new grades of Elastollan® TPU, 1176A10FR and 1188A10FR. These grades meet the global requirements for low values of conduction (< 35 µS/mm), according to EN 50267-2-2 or IEC 60754-1.

These new grades are Non-Halogenated FR Ether grades that have superior hydrolysis resistance, abrasion properties and cold temperature flexibility. In addition to these benefits, the new Elastollan TPU grades have improved adhesion of grommets due to low amount of fillers
