Everflon+ ETFE Cross-Linkable compounds contain a cross linking agent, which is used to enhance the toughness of ETFE, commonly required in automotive or aerospace cables. Crosslinking ETFE increases its mechanical properties such as abrasion resistance, cut-through resistance, and tensile strength, especially at elevated temperatures.
These products are manufactured as “ready-to-use” and can be used in combination with Everflon+ Color Concentrates for pigmented cables. Typical customization of cross-linkable product includes desired color, flexibility, melt flow rate of final compound, and amount of cross-linking needed for the application. The processed article can be cross-linked using electron-beam radiation or gamma radiation.
