PolyOne Launches Moisture-Cured ECCOH™ XLS for Non-Halogen Wire & Cable Applications

NEWS RELEASE

PolyOne Corporation (NYSE: POL), a premier global provider of specialized polymer materials, services and solutions, today announced the launch of ECCOH XLS low smoke and fume, non-halogen formulation for flame retardant wire and cable applications. This new moisture-cured solution from PolyOne helps manufacturers improve supply chain logistics to streamline manufacturing and optimize performance.

With the introduction of moisture-cured ECCOH XLS technology, wire and cable manufacturers can now choose the most cost-effective technology for specific production environments when selecting a low smoke and fume, non-halogen composition:

  • Dry silane
  • E-beam irradiation
  • Moisture cure

ECCOH XLS enables manufacturers to efficiently process a non-halogenated, flame-retardant material without capital investment in extra equipment or adding steps to complete crosslinking. The new offering was developed for applications including low-voltage power cables for building and construction use and specialty wire and cable for marine environments.

With superior shelf life, ECCOH XLS flame-retardant material for wire and cable jacketing (sheathing) and insulation avoids logistics concerns common with other crosslinking methods. The new material can be cured in a water bath as part of a processing line, or within ten days at ambient temperature regardless of humidity levels, and offers excellent processing and flame retardant performance.
