How much do you know about the material of the mobile phone data cable?


The explosive growth of mobile digital devices represented by smart phones has brought great convenience to people's lives and work. As the medium between the mobile phone and the charging cable, it is a data cable that does not seem very conspicuous, and its importance is often overlooked by people. And no matter how powerful the power is, it must be transmitted to the smart phone through the data line. If a low-quality data cable is used, the charging time will still be extended.

But do you really understand this thread that you use every day? Do you know the material of the data cable in your hand? What kind of data cable is better? Is it ignorant? Then I will give you a wave of popular science analysis.

As an ordinary consumer, the most intuitive feeling about the material of the data cable is that the cable 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 cable, which is the outermost layer of the data cable. , Although there are many types of data cables on the market, the outer covering materials used are nothing more than TPE, PVC, and braided wires.



PVC material


Among them, PVC material is a commonly used material for most data cables. It has non-flammability, high strength, weather resistance and excellent geometric stability. The thread produced with this material feels hard.



TPE material


To put it simply, TPE material is actually a soft rubber material that can be processed and formed by general thermoplastic molding machines. Its elasticity and toughness have been greatly improved compared with PVC materials. Can be recycled to reduce costs. At present, most of the original data cables of mobile phones are still made of TPE material. The thread produced by this material has a soft feel.



Woven material


Most of the braided data cables are made of nylon. It is well known that nylon is a kind of clothing material, so the fold resistance and durability of the braided data cable is naturally higher than that of PVC and TPE materials. However, the woven material feels relatively less smooth than PVC and TPE.

Of course, in addition to the above-mentioned common materials, there are also many special materials of wire, such as sewing cloth, fishing net wire, silicone and even metal hose.

So, when it comes to this, some friends may ask: What kind of data cable is the best?

From the mainstream of the market, the data cable using TPE/TPR thermoplastic elastomer material has excellent processing performance, is convenient to deploy a variety of beautiful colors, and is easy to process, can achieve matte or delicate effects, and make the hand feel smooth and not sticky. The material is safe and non-toxic, has no peculiar smell, and will not cause any irritation to human skin.


Not only that, the performance of the data cable made of TPE material is stable, the flame-retardant aspect reaches the V0 level, the phosphorus-free ozone resistance, and the reliable performance of safety and environmental protection have made it a mainstream in foreign countries. Therefore, it is not difficult to understand that the data lines produced by foreign players in the mobile phone field such as Apple and Samsung use TPE/TPR elastomer materials.

In fact, each material has its own advantages. you may wish to try it out and find a material you like.
