RADIATION CROSS-LINKABLE COMPOUNDS

One of Taprath’s recent developments includes the introduction of Radiation crosslinkable compounds in its product basket.

Irradiation technology is used since the seventies to crosslink sheath and insulation of cables. Generally, the main expected improvement is temperature and creep resistance (hot set test), but secondary improvements like increased chemical resistance to fluids like oils, greases, and higher resistance to abrasion are also researched.
