Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE)

Because of its resistance to oil, heat, flame, and its durability against the elements, chlorinated polyethylene (CPE) is typically used to insulate wire and control cables for industrial power plant applications, appliance wire, lead wire, coil leads, transformer leads, and motor lead wire. 

 CPE can often serve as a lower cost, more environmentally friendly alternative to chlorosulfonated polyethylene while matching chemical, flame and UV resistance.
