ATPolymer is a professional cross linked polyethylene manufacturer. XLPE is the abbreviation of the English name of cross-linked polyethylene. Polyethylene is a linear molecular structure that is easily deformed at high temperatures. The process of cross-linking polyethylene turns it into a network structure. This structure is highly resistant to deformation even at high temperatures.
XLPE has strong acid and alkali resistance and oil resistance. lots combustion products are water and carbon dioxide, which is less harmful to the environment and meets the requirements of modern fire safety.
XLPE with a net-like three-dimensional structure has excellent heat resistance.lt will not decompose and carbonizebelow 200℃, the long-term working temperature can reach 90 ℃, and the thermal life can reach 40 years.
XLPE maintains the original good insulation properties of PE, and the insulation resistance is further increased. Its dielectric loss tangent value is very small, and it is tiny affected by temperature.
Due to the establishment of new chemical bonds between macromolecules, the hardness, stiffness, wear-resistance, and impact resistance of XLPE are improved, which makes up for the shortcomings of PE that is susceptible to environmental stress and cracking.
