Abstract : A foamable polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) resin which meets the UL 910 flammability classification has been developed for wire and cable applications. The foamable PVDF composition is based on a chemical blowing agent system which is thermally activated during extrusion. Extrusion and wire coating conditions for the preparation of foamed PVDF insulation will be discussed. Electrical and mechanical properties of the foam insulation are presented with reference to the foam density and cell size. (Author)
