First HDPE cable compound without ADCA

Borealis has launched the world’s first chemically-foamed HDPE cable compound without use of ADCA (azodicarbonamide), a substance which is classified as SVHC (Substance of Very High Concern) and has recently been recommended for inclusion in the REACH Annex XIV ‘Authorisation’ list. Borealis’ HE1355 is intended in particular for telecommunications cables, including foam or foam skin insulation telephone cables, as well as dry core or jelly-filled cables, and is offered in low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) formulation, based on PIN flame retardants, to meet industry and building safety requirements. The compound offers good processability, stabilisation and toughness.
