How XLPE Power Cables Features Make It Preferable in Electrician?

XLPE power cable is a type of polyethylene cables that have cross-links. It is used extensively in domestic infrastructure. It has an extremely high resistance to a number of corrosives and is hence, used in very hostile environment. It replaced PVC and CPVC as the chosen insulating material. XLPE power cable is preferred over other alternatives because of its excellent electrical properties and low dielectric loss factor. For instance, it can tolerate higher voltages than PVC. Applications of XLPE Power Cables We find XLPE cables all around us — underground, overhead, in power stations, cable ducts, on the ground and offshore. The unique properties of XLPE allow us to use these cables where we have very unique or aggressive conditions and we need cables to function under such dema...
