101b silane xlpe compound of sioplas method product. Silane-crosslinkable polyethylene (XLPE) compounds are used for the insulation of medium and high voltage cables.
Sioplas is a method for producing XLPE compounds that involves adding silane to the polyethylene before extrusion. During the crosslinking process, the silane molecules react with the polyethylene molecules to form crosslinks, which improve the mechanical and electrical properties of the material.
The resulting XLPE insulation has excellent resistance to heat, abrasion, and chemical corrosion, making it a popular choice for power cables.
