TOPIC: Silane Shrinkage

Silane Shrinkage 1 year, 3 months ago #2298

Hello Everybody

We are experiencing high shrinkage with silane insulation material. We have increased the tension at the take up but after a couple of days the material becomes very loose affecting the next process of stranding the insulated cables.

If any of you have any comments how to solve this problem, I will appreciate it

NOTE: The silane used for insulation is a material produced using infusion technology (PE+silane+catalyst) in the same pellet; before we used sioplas materials (PE+Silane) + (catalysts)

Thanks and best regards

Hello Bighead,

Assuming I understand your description correctly, I would imagine that the wire is far too hot when spooled. When the wire cools, it becomes loose on the spool.
