Lightweight, flexible plastic conduit has introduced significant changes to cable protection. By changing the chemical makeup, manufacturers can create plastics with specific properties to suit various environments. Polypropylene is one of these carefully engineered materials. With its flame retardance, chemical resistance and mechanical strength, polypropylene flexible conduit is an excellent choice for cable protection.
AerosUSA has established exclusive relationships with some of the world’s most innovative manufacturers of cable protection solutions. Our customers operate in the renewable energy, rail and transit, heavy equipment industries and more. Our technologically advanced protection options have proven themselves in these demanding environments over and over again.
Uses and Advantages of Polypropylene Flexible Conduit
Like most plastic flexible conduit, polypropylene tubing is lightweight and easy to cut and fit. Polypropylene possesses some unique advantages. Since this material displays excellent insulative qualities, it lends itself readily to the protection of electrical wiring. Polypropylene is also flame retardant and self-extinguishing to minimize the risk of fire.
In addition to being waterproof, polypropylene flexible conduit is exceptionally resilient when faced with chemical exposure. This sturdy material will resist damage from acids, bases and solvents, as well as oil and gas. Polypropylene conduit is also UV resistant and will prevent cable degradation when used in outdoor applications.
When you need to protect pre-assembled cables, polypropylene flex split conduit is one of the best options available. Equipped with a two-piece design allowing it to be slipped over wiring, split flexible conduit requires no unplugging. AerosUSA offers divisible polypropylene conduit to accommodate wiring splits and forks. This reclosable design is ideal for retrofitting jobs.
As the exclusive U.S. representative of world-renowned manufacturer Flexa GmbH, AerosUSA provides polypropylene flex split conduit with FLEXAZip® technology. Utilizing a wire routing tool and an additional closure strip for sealing, this design allows for the rapid, effortless placement of cables so you can ensure their protection.
Given its resistance to abrasion, heat, fire and aggressive chemicals, polypropylene flexible conduit is a favorite for industrial machinery. The flex split design makes this versatile conduit excellent for wiring harnesses in engine bays that may interact with heat, sparks and chemicals.
