The company’s exhibit at stand G62 in Hall 11 will centre on its range of industrial polymers for improved performance in wire and cable compounds; the insulating capabilities of its fluoropolymer resins under the harshest environmental conditions; and its portfolio of speciality thermoplastics for extruded, high-performance insulation and/or jacketing applications. A presentation of the impregnating resins, wire enamels and core sheet varnishes developed by DuPont Electrical Insulation Systems rounds off the DuPont show exhibit.
DuPont will exhibit a comprehensive portfolio of high performance materials and new technologies for the wire and cable industry at Wire 2008.
DuPont modifiers for improved wire and cable compound performance
DuPont™ Fusabond® coupling agents enable compounders to improve both mechanical properties and flame retardancy by allowing increased filler levels in halogen-free, flame retardant and low-smoke insulation and jacketing compounds. Making its debut at Wire 2008, Fusabond® NMO525D enhances compound flexibility by around 50 percent versus standard coupling agents, while maintaining high tensile strength and elongation at break. DuPont will also use the show to promote the use of Elvaloy® ethylene based terpolymers in halogen-free, flame-retardant cables to provide improved oil and chemical resistance and low temperature flexibility.
DuPont fluoropolymers for electrical insulation
Innovations in fluoropolymers, to be presented at Wire 2008, include new products and technologies for low-loss DuPont Teflon® PTFE and FEP wire constructions. A new foam grade, Teflon® FEP TE 9810, produces smaller, better dispersed and more homogenous voids, compared to previous Teflon® foam grades, for enhanced electrical properties in wires with melt extruded fluoropolymer insulations. Depending on the construction, this grade, Teflon® FEP TE 9810, has the ability to be self skinning, offering production of cost-effective, high-performance foam insulation for data cables. Meanwhile a new, licensable extrusion technology from DuPont incorporates air into the extruded Teflon® PTFE insulation for higher performance, low-loss data cables.
High performance extrusion solutions for wire and cable
As part of the DuPont exhibit for Wire 2008, DuPont Engineering Polymers will present a number of extrudable, speciality materials for the wire and cable industry, including DuPont™ Zytel® nylon resins, DuPont™ Crastin® PBT thermoplastic polyester resins and DuPont™ Hytrel® thermoplastic polyester elastomer resins and DuPont™ ETPV engineering thermoplastic vulcanizate. They are used in the development of finished products for either insulation and/or jacketing applications, as well as for straight or coiled cables with enhanced elastic memory recovery over a wide temperature range, which meet stringent requirements at an attractive final cost. End-use industries include automotive, transportation, robotics, appliance, shipyard, oil and alternative energies, to name a few.

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.
In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...

For the first time, scientists have succeeded in studying the strength of hydrogen bonds in a single molecule using an atomic force microscope. Researchers from the University of Basel’s Swiss Nanoscience Institute network have reported the results in the journal Science Advances.
Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe and is an integral part of almost all organic compounds. Molecules and sections of macromolecules are...
