What is Cathodic Protection?
Cathodic protection is an electro-chemical process that is used to prevent or drastically reduce the corrosion of metal. Performance Wire and Cable uses this process to manufacture our cathodic protection cable. The main use of this cable is for corrosion prevention of metal in various industries and applications across the globe. Often used for the following applications, cathodic protection is instrumental to protect and prevent corrosion.
- Storage tanks
- Well casings
- Marine crafts
Performance Wire and Cable is your source for cathodic protection cable. Our pipeline cathodic protection cable offers superior resistance to abrasions, crushing, chemicals, oils, sun damage, and moisture. The cables can be directly installed in just about any type of soil, as well as fresh, brackish, or saltwater environments.
Performance Wire and Cable’s HALAR dual insulation is made up of fluoropolymer insulation, allowing the cable to exhibit superior chemical resistance, as well as additional resistance to corrosive chlorine and hydrogen gases. Our HALAR cable’s primary layer is most resistant to sulfuric and hydrochloric acid, as well as chlorine. The secondary layer is made up of a high molecular weight polyethylene (HMWPE) insulation, allowing for pliable strength, and is capable of withstanding excessive manipulation during installation.
HALAR/HMWPE cathodic protection cable from Performance Wire and Cable is ideal for direct earth burial or water submerged applications, including storage tanks, pipelines, well casings, and more. In a pipeline cathodic protection system, there is protection against galvanization and electrolytic corrosion of the object it’s meant to protect.
KYNAR/HMWPE cable is also available from PWC and, like its counterparts, it offers exceptional resistance to chemicals. It provides superior resistance to chlorine, sulfuric acid, as well as hydrochloric acid, which the HMWPE insulation cannot withstand on its own. KYNAR protection cable is constructed much like HALAR cable, including HMWPE outer jacketing, which provides flexibility and strength to withstand natural abuse without damaging the conductor.
