Dow ranked No. 7 on the Fair360 2023 Top 50 Companies for Diversity list.
Dow introduced the ENDURANCE HFDD-4201 SC Compound for Cable Systems, a novel cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) solution to help reduce carbon emissions during manufacturing.
XLPE insulation is the leading technology for high-voltage transmission cable applications but currently requires degassing periods of up to a few weeks to reduce cross-linking byproducts. ENDURANCE HFDD-4201 transforms the cable manufacturing process by significantly reducing cable degassing times while maintaining high quality.
“Identifying a solution for transmission class cable insulation that is efficient and sustainable has been at the heart of creating ENDURANCE Compounds for Cable Systems,” said Joanna Giovanoli, Senior Marketing Manager of Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics. “We are committed to offering our wire and cable customers innovative materials that help them keep up with industry demand while also ensuring their products meet the needs of the grid of tomorrow.”
When paired with quality manufacturing processes, this product can help deliver underground power transmission cables that meet or exceed global reliability and durability standards.
