From Bare Wire to Eye-candy Resins—An American Electrical Cable and Cord Set Manufacturer Holds the Line
Posted on 11/21/22 8:21 AM
Before cord sets are ready to be boxed for shipping, the colorants used in the resins, and the shiny brass and alloys of blades and pins may often resemble an electrical work of art that catches the eye—especially the orange and red cord sets preferred by Australian and Denmark hospitals respectively. Or maybe it’s a clear molded plug, or a hand-wired plug where one can see inside to tell whether every wire retains electrical continuity around the stainless steel ring that binds the conductors. Even standard colors like black and gray offer a semblance of eye candy while manufactured to carry hundreds of volts to equipment across multiple environments.

East and Gulf Coast Ports Overtake West Coast in Imports The backlash at America’s largest seaport seemed inevitable. Not that many months ago, upwards of 120 ghost ships languished well off L.A.’s coastline waiting to berth and offload cargo.

Individual conductor wires are extruded in resin before 2- and 3-wire conductors are cabled into a “twist” of conductors before jackets are extruded over them. The jacketing process is similar to insulating copper wires on the extrusion line. The main difference is jacketing uses more extruded resin making it more time-consuming than insulating. Prior to extrusion, talc is applied to the twisted, insulated conductors which acts as a release-agent for stripping the jacket. This is especially user-friendly when a few millimeters of jacket need to be stripped for crimping wires.
