New EVM Rubber for Hoses and Cable Sheathings

Levapren PXL With High Tensile Strength From Arlanxeo

EVM rubber Levapren PXL for hoses and cable sheathings (© Arlanxeo)

For the production of this new EVM series Arlanxeo Holding B.V., Maastricht, Netherlands utilizes reactive extrusion. In contrast to precrosslinking via radiation, this technology uses very small amounts of peroxide to precrosslink the polymer, while ensuring that no traces of the crosslinker are left in the finished product. The result is a homogeneously precrosslinked, free-flowing granulate with very good rheological properties.

Higher Tensile Strength, Less Adhesion

Reinforcing fillers, such as highly active carbon blacks, can be efficiently dispersed with Levapren PXL. According to the manufacturer, this allows for example the production of hoses with a tensile strength up to two megapascals higher than those with conventional EVM type. The PXL variants also show a reduced tack and adhesion to metal, which is good for processing in internal mixers and on rolling mills.

In addition to the use in the wire and cable or automotive industries, the free-flowing granulates are also suitable for rubber and plastics processors with continuous mixing processes, who were previously unable to use Levapren.
