Crosslinking Wire 4
【Return a list of pages】
Characteristics of Radiation Crosslinking:
1. Solder resistance: Sample wires are immersed into a 250°C solder bath for 1min. Irradiated polyethlene cable does not melt and keeps its shape.
2. Deformation property: Sample wires are corssed and heated at 200°C under 4 kg weight for 10min. Irradiated PVC does not deform.
3. Solvent Resistance: PVC immersed into methlyethylketone at room temperature for 24 hours. Irradiated PVC does not dissolve with this solvent.
4. Over current property: PVC insulted wires are charged with 100A of electric current for 5 minutes. The non-corsslinked PVC melts down, but irradiated PVC does not melt and keep its shape.
