What is a PUR cable?
A PUR cable, also known as polyurethane, is a cable with a sheath made of PUR. When a cable rubs against the ground or against something else, the chance of wear is great. The cable will not last long and the connected devices will no longer receive power. By using a PUR cable, the chance of wear and tear is much smaller. The cable is also extremely suitable as an extension cable. During use, extension cables almost always rub the ground. If you are going to use the cable as an extension cable, always choose a striking colour. This will make the cable more noticeable during operations. The cable is hardly ever used in vehicles.
Advantages of PUR cable
Compared to a normal cable, a PUR cable has many advantages. First of all, the cable is very wear-resistant, which promotes durability. Rapid replacement with a new cable is therefore not necessary. In this way, many cables are saved. In addition, PUR cables are lightweight. This ensures that the cables fall within the ARBO-standards. The cables are also resistant to chemicals and are flexible at low temperatures. And you don't have to worry about high temperatures either. The cable is heat-resistant.
