VIENNA (Borealis) -- Borealis, a leading provider of chemical and innovative plastics solutions and market leader for the wire and cable industry, has launched the newly developed LE0520. This new strippable semiconductive insulation shield compound demonstrates a consistent low strip force over a very wide temperature range which is unique to the wire and cable industry. Thorough testing under all extreme weather conditions shows that the product always easily strips while leaving a very clean insulation surface without pick-off.
LE0520 sets more new standards in the wire and cable industry. Not only does the product exceed all different industry standards like thermal aging, its new, revolutionary product design also allows a very smooth surface of the semiconductive shield, giving further advantages to the cable's electrical performance. Cable producers additionally report ease of processing and a reduction of by-product residues in the Continuous Vulcanization (CV) tube as clear advantages of LE0520.
Borealis' Executive in CIS Roman Romanov is going to participate in Russian Polymers Summit on October 14, 2010, organized by ICIS and MRC. For more information please refer to http://www.icisconference.com/russianpolymers/ Summit official web page.
