Applications of Dioctyl Terephthalate (DOTP) in cable production
Dioctyl Terephthalate (DOTP) is used in the production of various types of cables, including fiber optic cables. DOTP is highly compatible with PVC and other resins used in cable production, making it an excellent plasticizer for cable materials.
In addition to its use in fiber optic cable production, DOTP is also used in the production of power cables, automotive cables, and building wires. DOTP is ideal for these applications because of its excellent electrical properties, good plasticizing effect, and low volatility.
DOTP is also used in the production of cable compounds, which are used to coat cables and provide insulation. DOTP can improve the flexibility and durability of cable compounds without compromising their electrical properties, making it an ideal plasticizer for this application.
Another application of DOTP in cable production is in the production of cable jackets. Cable jackets are used to protect cables from physical damage and environmental factors such as moisture and UV radiation. DOTP is an ideal plasticizer for cable jackets because of its excellent weather resistance and low temperature flexibility.
