Supercure the High Productivity XLPE concept from Borealis

Borealis A/S : 16 March, 2000  (New Product)
Borealis, the leading supplier of crosslinkable polyethylene for power cables and well known in the field of extra high voltage applications, has developed the next generation of XLPE insulation which delivers considerably improved crosslinking speed. The insulation compound is marketed under the name Supercure LE8201 and the inner semiconductive compound to accompany is designated Supercure LE8280. Production speed improvements in excess of 25% have been recorded. The new compounds offer higher reactivity and response to peroxide crosslinking at temperatures experienced in the vulcanisation tube without increasing the sensitivity to scorch in the extruder.
Borealis, the leading supplier of crosslinkable polyethylene for power cables and well known in the field of extra high voltage applications, has developed the next generation of XLPE insulation which delivers considerably improved crosslinking speed.

The insulation compound is marketed under the name Supercure LE8201 and the inner semiconductive compound to accompany is designated Supercure LE8280.

Production speed improvements in excess of 25% have been recorded. The new compounds offer higher reactivity and response to peroxide crosslinking at temperatures experienced in the vulcanisation tube without increasing the sensitivity to scorch in the extruder.

The newly developed products support the need for improved cost effectiveness of power cables.

The product is, therefore, ideal for use in situations when cable extrusion speed is a limiting factor, e.g. in situations of extremely high order income, or keeping up with market demands prior to investment in a new production line. Reprints and more details of the development can be obtained direct from Borealis.
