Showa Denko Europe at the Cables 2015 conference


Showa Denko Europe, with support of our colleagues from Japan, joined „Cables 2015“, the 15th international conference and exhibition for polymers in wire & cable in Cologne, Germany, with our own exhibition table from March 3-5, 2015. We presented our products Higilite (Aluminium Hydroxide ATH), Elaslen (Chlorinated Polyethylene CPE), and Showa Denko Chloroprene (Polychloroprene CR) to the international audience.

Higilite was presented to the European market for the first time, since the start of production at Showa Denko’s new plant in Indonesia. With the increased capacity, we will be able to supply customers in Europe with this flame-retardant additive.

CPE and CR are elastomeric materials, which are used as base raw material in compounds for cable jackets. We offer a large variety of grades to meet the customers’ requirements. Unique grades of Elaslen CPE with extremely low sodium content for superior resistivity, or with very high molecular weight for improved chemical resistance, mechanical strength and heat aging properties, brought the attention of the visitors to our table.

We will follow up the interesting contacts we could newly establish in the near future. If you have any further questions about our products for the wire & cable industry, please contact our Elastomer Group, which will be happy to help you.
