The polyethylene cross-linked is a method called the Catenary Continuous Vulcanisation (CCV) process by Silane & Peroxide. This process improves the properties of the cables and makes it suitable for power transmission. These compounds can be used at high temperature above 110 C where the normal Polyethylene compounds are thermally unstable.

Characteristics of XLPE Cables/Pipes
  • Higher current carrying capacity with high permissible continuous conductor temperature
  • Higher temperature to withstand emergency overload
  • Extremely low dielectric losses
  • Higher short circuit ratings
  • Light in weight
  • Trouble-free in maintenance and simple in terminating and jointing
