Products for the cable industry


For the cable industry and its suppliers DEFOTEC offers a whole series of water-swellable, water-absorbing and water-blocking polymers, so-called “superabsorbents” (SAPs), which prevent water penetrating all kinds of cables - for instance power cables, electricity cables and fiber-optic cables - and hence maintain their efficiency. Today these SAPs are integrated in almost all types of cables.


THE FOLLOWING PRODUCTS ARE OFFERED
  • DEFOSORB CA 50 directly integrated into the cable
  • DEFOSORB CA 50 water-blocking cable filling compounds
  • DEFOSORB CL 360 water-blocking swelling tapes
  • DEFOPOL MX 60 and MX 75 (liquid SAP) water-swelling yarns and fibers
  • DEFOSORB CA 50 for manufacturing water-blocking yarns and fibers

NEW: LIQUID SUPER ABSORBENTS FOR YARN COATINGS

DEFOPOL MX 90 is a newly developed water-in-oil emulsion for yarn coatings, to provide yarns and fibers with water-absorbing and water-blocking properties. Yarns/fibers fitted with DEFOPOL MX 90 are required and used in the cable industry. DEFOPOL MX 90 has the following advantages:

  • improved, higher water absorption
  • acrylamide-free
  • oil phase based on environmentally-friendly, degradable ester oils
  • easy processing and coating of yarns and fibers
  • forms no or only limited sedimentations on machine components and yarn guides
  • easy winding of the coated yarns and fibers
