Communication Cables and
Cable Jacketing

Borealis offers a comprehensive range of solutions for advanced data, copper multipair, fibre optic, and coaxial cables.

An increasingly connected world requires increasingly efficient connections

Driven by advancements in technology, the amount of data being transferred currently doubles every 22 months. Communication networks around the world must respond to rising data volumes by for example moving towards use of data cables in the higher categories 7 and 8. As fibre to the home (FTTH) and fibre to the building (FTTB) have become the norm, complex installation environments (such as those with tight spaces) are also becoming more frequent. In order to satisfy these rapidly evolving and increasingly sophisticated industry needs, Borealis offers a comprehensive range of solutions for advanced data, copper multipair, fibre optic, and coaxial cables.

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.

Borealis and Borouge offer 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

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. 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.

Working with our partners to find tailor-made solutions

With more than 50 years of experience, Borealis is the dependable partner of choice for high-quality polyolefins used in a wide variety of power transmission and distribution cables as well as in electrical and fibre optic communications. By working together with Borealis, wire and cable producers have access to high-quality, reliable, and innovative power cable solutions – such as Borstar for fibre optic cables – in order to meet rising demand for fast and efficient communication networks and to facilitate rapid infrastructure growth.
