POWERCORD AND WATERBLOCKING CORD
Powercord is used to fill large voids in power cables by simultaneous longitudinally waterproofing in low, medium and high voltage applications.
Powercord is available in semi-conducting (type PSC) and insulating (type WBC) performance in the diameter of 8 mm to 50 mm, with very high strength in areas of 150 to 2000 N. Powercord is reaching a very high water absorption, depending on the diameter more than 10 liters / meter. Even in sea water a water absorption up to 2 liters / meter is possible. Powercord can be supplied on cable reels up to a diameter of 1 m.
Diameter and strength can be individually and quickly adaptable to any form of cable
Swellability of the material is adaptable to the cable construction
Conductivity of the material is adaptable to the cable construction
Powercord is up to 80 % lighter than other filling materials
Cables constructed with Powercord can be bent easily
Powercord can be used in the cable manufacturing process easier, because torsion can be compensated
Improved CO2 balance (up to 80%) compared to conventional cable filler in EPDM
