The building and construction industry needs to balance a number of trends, including higher performance, increased durability, improved safety, better aesthetics, reduced maintenance, greater energy efficiency, reduced material use and waste, and lower costs.
To meet this challenge we have developed a range of polymers, rubbers, plasticizers and resins to manufacture and protect electrical components while delivering the highest levels of performance and reliability in severe operating conditions.
Applications and benefits
Exact™ plastomers can be used to modify Vistalon™ EPDM and XLPE compounds and blend well with Escorene™ Ultra EVA formulations for halogen-free applications. Jayflex™ plasticizers contribute to the effectiveness of PVC as an insulating and sheathing material.
Exact™ plastomers contribute outstanding flexibility to EVA in halogen-free applications and are a good blend partner with a variety of compounds. Vistamaxx™ performance polymers are a good option for highly flexible electrical applications with halogen-free requirements. Jayflex™ plasticizers contribute to the effectiveness of PVC as an insulating and sheathing material.
Vistalon™ EPDM rubber, Vistamaxx™ performance polymers, Exact™ plastomers and Escorene™ Ultra EVA copolymers are used to build and protect electrical components while delivering the highest levels of performance and reliability in severe operating conditions.
Fiber optic cable gel filling compounds, along with tough cable casings and internal supports, are among the critical ingredients that create a secure environment to protect fiber optic threads from temperature extremes and moisture. SpectraSyn™ Hi Vis PAO, SpectraSyn Elite™ mPAO and SpectraSyn™ Lo Vis PAO perform exceptionally well in fiber optic cable gel applications.
SpectraSyn PAO, with their well-defined molecular weights and structures, can be used to make filling compounds with various additives that remain integral (no separation) at extreme temperatures and are compatible with many types of polymers used in cable fabrication.
