Cable Jacketing

An increasingly connected world requires increasingly efficient connections

Innovative technology at the core

Our leading-edge technology Borstar® enables us to offer a wide range of linear low, medium and high-density polyethylene (PE) compounds to fit all jacketing requirements for fibre optic cables, offering easy processing, low shrinkage, and the highest stress crack resistance.

Our partners benefit from a broad product range of copper multipair cables, from solid to foam solutions. In coaxial cable applications, we offer a two-component solution for radio frequency cables and a complete range of gas injection insulation and jacketing grades for various types of coax cables.

Specific solutions for specific industry issues

Borealis HE4873 is the compound of choice for physical foaming of high-end data cables. Offering the advantages of a full compound, it enables stable processing at high line speed and a fine and uniform cell structure with increased crushability. Longer production runs can be achieved due to the anti-plate out nucleating agent system. Borealis HE4872 is our recommended solid insulation with improved copper adhesion to reduce cross talk; it can also be used both as conductor and outer skin.
