Utilizing proprietary methodologies, we deliver on your quality, price & delivery objectives. Electric Cable Compounds (ECC) operates a non-carbon black compounding facility uniquely specializing in the development and manufacture of elastomeric high performance rubber (EPR) and polyolefin based compounds.
Compounds produced in our state-of-the-art 65,000 square foot (6000 square meter) facility include a variety of specialty RoHS and REACH compliant products. Primary applications include products for medium voltage cables for power, industrial, mining, distribution, and transportation as well as low voltage, flame-retardant materials for control, secondary network cable, and tray cable. Additionally, ECC specializes in compounds for high temperature, HFFR, appliance, motor lead, and automotive wiring per stringent industry standards and specific customer requirements.
If you require a specialty compound that is not on ECC’s standard product list, our highly-skilled experts will work with you to develop it.
