Sioplas process is a method used for producing cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation compounds for medium voltage (MV) cables up to 35kV. In this process, a special catalyst and a silane coupling agent are added to the polymer melt to create a chemical reaction that results in the cross-linking of the polymer chains. This cross-linking improves the mechanical and thermal properties of the insulation, making it more resistant to damage and aging.
The YJ-35 peroxide XLPE insulation compound is a type of XLPE insulation produced using the Sioplas process with a peroxide catalyst. This type of insulation is suitable for MV cables with a voltage rating up to 35kV and has excellent electrical, mechanical, and thermal properties.
