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®.
DuPont Packaging and Industrial Polymers is a world-class manufacturer of high-performance resins and films for a variety of packaging and industrial applications. Its best known ethylene copolymer products include Surlyn® resins for packaging and industrial applications, Bynel® coextrudable adhesives, Selar® PA amorphous polyamide barrier resins, Nucrel® acid copolymers, Elvax® EVA copolymers, Elvaloy®, Elvaloy AC®, Entira(TM) and Fusabond® modifiers.

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
