HUBER+SUHNER’s RADOX®, or “radiation X-linked” technology, describes the process of crosslinking thermoplastic polymers by means of electron beams. This technology is used to improve the thermal, mechanical, and chemical properties of cable insulation materials. RADOX® cables do not melt, possess better abrasion resistance and greater cut resistance than conventional cables and, even with thinner insulation, are much more resistant to various environmental factors.
RADOX® cables offer an extended lifetime at lower temperatures, less shrinking on insulation material at higher temperatures, and better heat ageing performance. With thinner insulation, the RADOX® cables deliver improved abrasion resistance and cut through resistance. These cables are also better equipped to withstand harsh environments and different types of liquids and chemicals.
