USB charging and sync cable have become an integral part of our daily lives, but do you really understand this cable that is used almost every day? Today, from the material aspect, I will give you a detailed analysis of the university questions contained in the small data lines.
What are the USB data cable skin materials?
As the average consumer, the most intuitive feeling for the data line material is that the line is a bit hard, or a bit soft, and feels good, but in fact, this different feel represents the different outer material of the data line, that is, the outermost layer of the data line. Although there are many kinds of data lines on the market at present, the materials used for the outer cover are nothing more than three materials: TPE, PVC, and braided wire.
Among them, PVC material is commonly used in most USB charging cord, and it has non-flammability, high strength, weather resistance and excellent geometric stability. However, the current data line of this material has been abandoned by many mobile phone manufacturers, mainly because of the appearance of better TPE outer material.
The simple point of the TPE material is actually a soft rubber material that can be processed by a general thermoplastic molding machine. Its elasticity and toughness are greatly improved compared with the PVC material. However, the most important thing is that it is more It is environmentally friendly and can be recycled to reduce costs. At present, most of the original data lines of mobile phones are still made of TPE material.
Most of the USB charging and data transferring cable of the braided wire material are made of nylon. It is well known that nylon is a kind of clothing material. Therefore, the folding and durability of the data line using the braided wire as the outer covering material is naturally higher than that of PVC and TPE. But unfortunately, the original data cable of the current mobile phone still uses the TPE material.
