The polyethylene family of insulating materials has been given a new dimension by the advent of flame-retardant vulcanizable polyethylene. This new wire and cable engineering material combines many of the property advantages of conventional polyethylene with the more desirable properties of organic rubber. In many cases, a single-shot covering of the new vulcanizable material exceeds the performance of conventional rubber insulations which require a braid or polychloroprene covering for flame or moisture resistance.
