Making its debut at Wire 2008, Fusabond® N525 is the latest offering for the HFFR compound market. “Poor flexibility is a common drawback with HFFR cables. By replacing existing coupling agents with Fusabond® N525 the compound flexibility is significantly improved while other properties like strength and elongation are maintained,” says Gustav Jannerfeldt, market segment leader for wire and cable at DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers.
As illustrated in the chart above, DuPont™ Fusabond® N525 significantly improves compound flexibility while maintaining strength and elongation.
Fusabond® N525 has the same high and consistent quality level as other Fusabond® grades currently used in the wire and cable industry. “The compound properties are strongly related to the coupling agent and any quality inconsistencies of the coupling agent may result in cable failure later on,” explains Jannerfeldt.
Apart from presenting its new coupling agents, DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers is also promoting the use of Elvaloy® ethylene based terpolymers in HFFR cables. By adding highly polar Elvaloy® terpolymers to the compound, both oil- and chemical resistance as well as low temperature flexibility are improved. Processing short comings normally associated with highly polar high VA content EVAs, such as blocking of pellets, are not present with Elvaloy®.

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
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...
