THE KEY TO SUCCESS IN THE MANUFACTURE OF HFFR COMPOUNDS

Halogen-free thermoplastic compounds (HFFR) are a range of high strategic value, bearing a complex and demanding manufacturing process. These compounds are mainly aimed at the market of electrical cables and telecommunications.
Our line dedicated to the manufacture of HFFR compounds has the most advanced technology to optimize the blending process: the screw configuration is characterized by a complex combination of elements of mixing, cutting, dispersing and mechanical energy. Depending on the characteristics of the polymers and additives and the final application of the product, the screw configuration is fully adapted to the material requirements. The know-how of Plasgom consolidated after years of experience is key at this stage.
The fully automated gravimetric metering, also makes the weighing phase a consistent and controlled process at all times. At the same time, it can work simultaneously with a variety of raw materials in various states: powder, liquid, pellet, …
The underwater cutting system at the end of the extrusion process, provides a technological solution that reduces energy consumption in the cooling phase of the material.
All these features give our manufacturing line of HFFR compounds a versatility that offers our customers state-of-the-art technology and product development.

Plasgom has developed a new PVC compound according to new French standard XP-C 32-321:2014-09 for PVC cable sheathing in outdoor applications

In March 2014, former french normative for low voltage installation (NF C, in force since 1972) was replaced for XP –C.32-321. This norm is mandatory for cables type U-1000 R2V and U-1000 AR2V.
Main significant contribution to this new text is improved resistance to UV radiation and to atmospheric agents, with a very demanding ageing test of six weeks long with temperatures cycles swinging from +55ºC to -25ºC, combined with UV radiation and sprinkling.
New formula developed in house for our technical department has largely outperformed normative required specifications with values far beyond stablished limit.
With this new certification PLASGOM is ready to offer to clients and partners a high performance product that meets this standard imposed by french regulation.
This product is now commercially available for all Plasgom’s clients. Please contact our commercial team by phone to 0034 93 5742467.
