Elastomer Group to present new products for the European market at the „Cables 2015“ conference in Cologne
Showa Denko Europe’s Elastomer Group will exhibit at the “Cables 2015” conference to be held from March 3 – 5 at the Maritim Hotel in Cologne, Germany. Raw materials for the wire and cable industry will be presented and specialty grades of ELASLENTM CPE with low sodium content for optimized resistivity properties will be introduced. Also HIGILITE® ATH fine particle grades will be initially promoted to European customers after the recent production start at the new plant in Indonesia.
ELASLENTM is the trade name for chlorinated polyethylene (CPE). Used as a flame retardant, it offers flexibility, resistance to weather, heat aging resistance and chemical resistance at the same time. Its low sodium content guarantees excellent electrical insulation properties up to 4 x 1016 [Ω∙cm].
HIGILITE® is Showa Denko’s aluminum hydroxide (ATH). The grades with fine particle sizes of 1 µm and below are especially suitable for the use as flame retardant filler.
Furthermore, Showa Denko Chloroprene Rubber (CR) is offered as a base polymer for cable sheathings, with a well-balanced profile of properties.
The products are available in a variety of grades, to meet the customer’s specific requirements for all relevant applications.
