Silicone rubber insulated wire and cable can be hot liquid vulcanized using similar techniques to those used for hot air vulcanizing. The major advantage of hot liquid vulcanization is the faster vulcanization rates which can be obtained. Silicone rubber insulated wire and cable can be vulcanized approximately twice as fast with hot liquid as hot air. Hot liquid vulcanization of silicone rubber insulated wire and cable should be an important consideration for manufacturers who wish to extrude silicone rubber insulated wire and cable at high extrusion rates and with a minimum amount of capital investment for vulcanizing equipment.
