A Study of Crosslinking by Electron Beaming of Polymeric Composition for Welding Cables


The Scope of Presentation was to emphasize the importance of the Electron Beam Crosslinking, advanced technology of the future as stated by the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory publication “Accelerator’s for AMERICA’ S Future”, about our Company. We produce crosslinked polymeric systems by means of very environmentally friendly outcome. No Byproducts to release and pollute the medium, low heat products to come out of the Electron Beam Accelerator, easy to handle by operators and easy to store and preserve as well as easy to transport worldwide

The presentation is sequenced in. five Chapters;

I. Short History of Electron Beaming Technology

II. Beaming Principle

III. Crosslinking Project

IV. Crosslinking Calculations

V. Bibliography

Our Company is willing to promote this Technology to expand and help other Companies and End Users to Prosper and use an environmentally friendly technology.

Our Goal is to provide value added solutions to our customers’ wire, cable, tubing and accessory needs.

Our Team promotes a safe, quality driven, efficient and globally responsible work environment while leveraging our technologies to be a Market Leader.
