The new white paper from HUBER+SUHNER explains the technology behind electron-beam crosslinking, including the necessary systems and process optimisations, and shows the applications and features of electron-beam-crosslinked products.

Modern product development requires technologically advanced solutions. The development of cables and wires is no exception. Special cables for the automotive, railway, energy and coil winding industries often have to withstand demanding environmental conditions. Standard polymer cables quickly reach the limits of their abilities.

One possible solution for demanding applications is to network standard polymer cables, which dramatically improves the properties of the materials. In the cable industry, chemical networking or electron-beam crosslinking is used.

This white paper focuses on the methods for electron-beam crosslinking and offers insights into system construction and process optimisation using three-dimensional computer simulations. It also shows the applications in which electron-beam-crosslinked cables are used and what effect crosslinking has on the properties of cables and wires.

HUBER+SUHNER has been developing and producing electron-beam-crosslinked cables and wires for over 30 years and has been able to perfect the process over time.
