XLPE Material from ATPolymer

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.

Types of XLPE Material

XLPE cross linked polyethylene is safe to process, easy to use, has a moderate validity period after adding resin, and has no disadvantages of premature or late cross-linking; it does not affect the processing performance and performance of the product; XLPE high density cross linked polyethylene is non-toxic, non-polluting, and does not irritate the skin and eyes.

What Is Cross Linked Polyethylene

Cross-linked polyethylene is an advanced form of polyethylene that has been chemically or physically modified to create bonds between its polymer chains, significantly enhancing its properties. This material boasts increased durability, superior thermal stability, and excellent chemical resistance while maintaining flexibility. These attributes make XLPE a preferred choice in various applications, such as plumbing, where it is used for both hot and cold water systems due to its resistance to scaling and corrosion. It's also favored in radiant floor heating systems and medical tubing, thanks to its ability to handle high temperatures and withstand harsh chemicals. Additionally, XLPE finds use in electrical insulation and automotive components, where its robustness and flexibility are crucial. Despite being more expensive than regular polyethylene, its long-term performance benefits make it an invaluable material in many industries.

Cross Linked Polyethylene Uses

Electrical Engineering

  • XLPE, procured from ATPolymer cross-linked polyethylene supplier, is favored for high-voltage cables due to its superior insulation properties derived from its cross-linked polyethylene structure.

  • The cross-linked structure enhances the material's ability to withstand high electrical stresses and ensures efficient transmission of electricity over long distances.

  • XLPE cables exhibit excellent resistance to heat, reducing the risk of overheating and electrical failures, thus ensuring reliable power transmission.

Automotive Sector Utilization

  • XLPE is extensively used in wire and cable harnesses in automobiles, benefiting from its robust mechanical properties.

  • The cross-linked polyethylene structure imparts high tensile strength to XLPE, making it suitable for withstanding the mechanical stresses and vibrations experienced in automotive applications.

  • Additionally, XLPE cables exhibit resistance to abrasion, ensuring long-term reliability and durability in the demanding automotive environment.

Construction Industry

  • XLPE is commonly employed in the construction of pipes for transporting natural gas and water.

  • Its cross-linked structure provides enhanced durability and resistance to chemical corrosion, ensuring the longevity and integrity of the infrastructure.

  • XLPE pipes are preferred for their ability to withstand harsh environmental conditions and aggressive substances, making them suitable for a wide range of construction projects.

Building Insulation Purposes

  • XLPE is utilized in the manufacturing of foam insulation boards for thermal insulation in buildings.

  • The material's excellent thermal properties, coupled with its structural integrity derived from cross-linking, make it an effective insulating material.

  • XLPE foam insulation boards contribute to energy efficiency by minimizing heat loss or gain in buildings, thereby reducing heating and cooling costs.

Properties of XLPE Material

Properties of XLPE Material

Chemical resistance

Chemical resistance

XLPE cross linked polyethylene 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.

Heat resistance

Heat resistance

Cross linked polyethylene XLPE with a net-like three-dimensional structure has excellent heat resistance. lt will not decompose and carbonize below 200℃, the long-term working temperature can reach 90 ℃, and the thermal life can reach 40 years.

lnsulation performance

lnsulation performance

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.

Mechanical properties

Mechanical properties

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.
