Materials designed for wire, cable & electrical applications
We move fast and we need information to move fast too. We expect uninterrupted data, responsive instruments and clear signals. And above all other performance criteria, we value safety. We've designed a robust material portfolio, giving options to engineers as you build cables to provide data energy and power, control, signals and other functions while adhering to strict fire performance standards.
The brand names GARAFLEX, GARATHANE, MEGOLON, MEXIFLEX, POLIVISOL, SMOKEGUARD, SYLVIN and VINASTAB are trademarks of Alphagary/Mexichem.
To support the growth and speed of information exchange, we’ve formulated a robust material portfolio, giving options to engineers as cables are designed to provide data, energy, power, control, signals and other functions while adhering to strict fire performance standards.
Explore more information about our brands and speak with a member of our commercial technical team. We're happy to help with product selection depending on your cable design* and testing requirements.
*Since testing is conducted on the cable, not the compound, material selection is dependent on the entire cable design

Compounds designed to build safe cables
Jacket/sheath and insulation/buffer compounds formulated for a myriad of copper and fiber optic cable applications designed to provide data, energy, power, control, signals and other functions while adhering to strict fire performance standards.
From material selection through testing, scale-up and production, our hands-on expertise in the wire & cable space thrives due to cooperative partnerships with our customers, long after product approval. Additionally, we work side-by-side with leading third-party testing facilities, such as Underwriters Laboratories, helping us understand test protocol as well as recognition programs (like fingerprinting protocol) that supports transparent reporting practices. All together, these principles translate to safety – in how we formulate, manufacture and support ongoing production as you build cables out of materials designed with integrity.
