The XLPE compound of Sioplas method is a type of insulation material used for cables, made by cross-linking polyethylene with a silane-based catalyst system. It provides excellent electrical and mechanical properties, as well as good resistance to heat, chemicals, and weathering.
Hot-dipped galvanized steel wire is a type of wire commonly used for cable armoring. It is made by dipping the steel wire in molten zinc to create a protective coating that helps prevent rust and corrosion. The galvanized steel wire provides strength and durability to the cable, protecting it from damage during installation and in service.
Both the XLPE compound of Sioplas method and hot-dipped galvanized steel wire are commonly used in the manufacturing of power cables, particularly in high-voltage and medium-voltage applications.
