At wire Düsseldorf 2012, technology leaders Borealis and Borouge will offer insight into their innovative approach to develop and produce solutions with their unique proprietary technology for power cables.

Through this world-class technology, it is possible to produce cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation and semicon products with consistent quality and the highest purity. This is primarily enabled through the application of a closed production loop – from the monomer to final packaging. Consequently this gives power cable manufacturers the opportunity to enter high end and most demanding applications with XLPE cable solutions such as EHV and DC power cables.

“As leading innovators in the wire and cable industry, Borealis and Borouge have proven to be long-term, reliable assets to the industry,” says Marc Hubert, Borealis’ Vice President for Wire and Cable. “With our proprietary technology for XLPE and semicon compounds, we have invested in our future and that of our customers and will continue to provide them with new, exciting innovations. I encourage our existing and potential new customers to visit us to find out more about our unique proprietary technology and the corresponding latest power cable solutions which will be revealed on our stand.”
