26.11.2018, 15:41

Rosendahl, the global leader in cable & wire production technologies, and HV Cable Solutions Oy, a Finland-based engineering and consulting company specialized in power cables & accessories and related materials and manufacturing solutions have joined forces. Together they are developing high-quality manufacturing solutions for HPTE - High Performance Thermoplastic Elastomers.

Over the past few years, HPTE-based power cable insulation systems have gained a lot of attention in the cable industry globally. Due to their excellent electrical behavior, they provide a lot of benefits to production.

HPTE provides cable manufacturers with an alternative way to produce medium and high-voltage cables that

  • have a higher operating temperature
  • are recyclable
  • have shorter lead time in production due to unnecessary degassing

  The newly started cooperation allows Rosendahl to develop the ability to provide HPTE MV Cable know-how packages comprising material formulations, production processes, cable performance and production equipment.

The HPTE product offer will be enhanced by higher-voltage classes in the future.
