EV Charging Cables & TPU; What You Need To Know

Understanding EV Charging Cables & TPU: Essential Information

When it comes to electric vehicle charging cables, the choice of cable material is crucial to ensure the safety, durability and functionality of the charging system. In recent years, there has been a lot of talk about the advantages of using TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) cable over TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) cable for electric vehicle charging cables. In this article, we will explore why TPU cable is a better choice for EV charging cables and what benefits it offers.

One of the main advantages of TPU cable is its ability to withstand hard abrasion, wear and tear. This is because TPU is a highly durable material that can resist deformation and cracking under pressure. This makes it an ideal choice for EV charging cables that are exposed to harsh environments and extreme conditions. TPU cable can also resist oil and other chemicals, making it an ideal choice for charging cables used in industrial settings.

Another key advantage of TPU cable is its radiation resistance. Unlike TPE cable, which can break down and become brittle under prolonged exposure to natural forms of radiation, TPU cable can maintain its integrity and functionality even under prolonged radiation exposure, making TPU the ideal choice for EV charging cables, offering the best choice for longevity.

TPU EV charging cables also offer superior elasticity and strength compared to TPE cable. This means that TPU cable can retain its shape and flexibility even under extreme stress, making it an ideal choice for EV charging cables that need to be bent and twisted in various directions. In addition, TPU cable is highly resistant to cuts and punctures, which can be a major concern with TPE cable. This makes TPU cable a safer and more reliable choice for EV charging cables.

TPU cable also offers a wider range of colours and styles than TPE cable. This is because TPU can be easily coloured, allowing manufacturers to create charging cables in a wide range of hues and shades. This makes it easier for EV owners to match their charging cables to their vehicle's colour scheme or personal style. In addition, TPU cable is a good choice for coloured cables because it is highly resistant to fading and discoloration over time.

Finally, TPU cable offers greater versatility than TPE cable. This is because TPU can be sterilized using a variety of methods, including steam cleaning and disinfectant solutions. This makes TPU cable an ideal choice for EV charging cables used in any settings where cleanliness and sanitation are a top priority. TPU cable is also more environmentally friendly than TPE cable, as it can be easily recycled and reused.
