HFFR for Energy, wire and cable


A big part of our HFFR materials for Energy, wire and cable are thermoplastic polymers. Thermoplastics are soft, moldable or extrudable at elevated temperatures and become solid when cooled down again. This process can be repeated which make Thermoplastic materials recyclable or reusable. 

Thermoplastics are high strength and reliable materials. They are fairly easy to manufacture at relatively low processing costs with high volume and precision. Our HFFR cables furthermore offer good insulating properties, work in wide temperature ranges, have excellent flame resistance with low toxicity and can  even be flexible.

At HEXPOL we have a long history of developing solutions for the Energy, wire and cable sector. With the acquisition of VICOM in 2021, we added another well-known specialist for Thermoplastic HFFR cables to our group.

The power to thrive

Our in house research and  development engineers understand the complexity involved in your business. They know the stringent requirements that you need to meet. Our Thermoplastic solutions are used in sheathing, insulation, bedding and meet the requirements of several different country standards and CRP regulations. That is why our materials are used all over the globe.

Whether you are producing a cable that carries data, signal or energy or you need a long-lasting cable sleeve for your fiber optic deployment, we are here to help.

At HEXPOL, the customer always comes first. Our global footprint and local presence, coupled with  our ability to offer fast-track delivery and compound or packaging customisation, will support your business growth plans.

HFFR and Thermoplastics

Our Thermoplastic portfolio covers a wide range of solutions including Polyolefines and modern halogen-free (HFFR, LSF0H, LSZH) technologies.

Products are delivered in natural coloured granules, packed in big bags

HEXPOL’s materials are produced with state-of-the-art equipment. The complete manufacturing process (feeding, mixing and cooling) is automized to assure consistent results in high quality.

Our in house control lab tests all the relevant compound properties to meet customers’ requirements, and fulfil international cable standards.

Typical Application Areas

Automotive Cables

Efficiency, compact design, light weight and the ability to withstand high temperatures and contact with vehicle fluids are just some of the requirements that cables for the automotive and transportation industry need to fulfil. Whatever connection is required in traditional and hybrid cars, fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) and electrical vehicles (EVs) we can offer custom made solutions for nearly all your requirements

Communication & Multimedia Cables

Enabling connectivity is the main mission of communication and multimedia cables. They are designed for low voltage and low currents and play a special role in optimal and reliable data transmission for all kind of media. Stay connected with our high-quality solutions.

Energy Cables

Worldwide electricity consumption is constantly increasing. Infrastructure reliability and grid interconnectability are seen as the key factors for supply of electrical power. Talk to our experts to learn more about our solutions.

Rubber, TPE & Thermoplastic Materials for Renewable Energy Cables

Renewable Energy Cables

The world is turning to renewable and sustainably-sourced energy. Our cable compounds can be found in solar applications, windparks and other decentralized power generations with cable networks on land, off shore or under water. They are highly resistant to the extreme outdoor conditions and can be used for flexible or permanent installations


Special Cables

Special cables for special requirements. Technological progress raises technical questions to cable producers to fulfill new requirements and designs. Future tasks in transportation, robotics, and industry need new material concepts. Our experts are ready to be part of this revolution.

Connectors, Terminators, Components...

Our portfolio offers much more than compounds for cables- we provide solutions for all energy accessories needed to get all the infrastructure up and running. From insulators, arresters, and joints for power grid to tapes, plugs, and wall boxes for small installations. Ask our experts for all materials you need.
