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.

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
