Cables and wires

Cables / wires

For years now, radiation crosslinking has ensured that plastics used to insulate cables and wires are able to fulfil the stringent requirements for resistance to heat and chemicals. Tried and tested applications include, for instance, improved resistance to welding beads in cables and leads in vehicles, in order to meet the heat resistance requirements classes C and D (working temperatures of up to 125 °C and 150 °C respectively). Today, energy cables are also successfully radiation crosslinked to obtain special properties.
