PVC is lighter in weight and lower in cost than most other conduits. Not only that, they stand up to a range of corrosive substances and are fantastically moisture resistant.
Electrical wiring in the home is usually insulated using jackets made from plasticized, high molecular weight PVC. PVC possesses first-rate insulation, superior resistance to fire, water, oils and hydrocarbons, a low tendency to form fish-eyes and incredible suppleness. What’s more, it’s also extremely cost-effective.

When it comes to manufacturing electrical ducts for cable protection, rigid PVC is an obvious choice thanks to its excellent insulation and fire resistance properties.
The extrusion process is used to form rigid or corrugated ducts. Recent developments in this market segment have included easing installation by optimizing the special internal design of ducts with enhanced electrical PVC cable placement.
Fuse boxes are often made from rigid PVC, thanks to its exceptional insulation properties, flame and heat resistance, quality surface finish, scratch-resistance and durability.
The use of long glass fiber- reinforced PVC results in extraordinary sturdiness, and so is of particular interest for the manufacture of large boxes for exterior use, replacing thermoset plastics.
Fuse boxes are produced using the injection process.
With excellent insulation properties, strong resistance to oils and hydrocarbons, high hot melt fluidity and a high quality surface finish, plasticized PVC is widely used in the production of wall plugs and accessories.
The process used to manufacture these products is over-molding by injection, using any possible color.
