How Does The Electron Beam Crosslinking Process Work?

What if you had a tool you could use to improve your existing plastic or polymer product? Or a tool that enables you to create a new specialty product? What if that tool could improve the temperature rating of your product or improve its chemical resistance or give it the low-temperature impact resistance your need? […]

How can I lower the cost per foot when processing reel-to-reel products?

  Part 1: Why more material on a reel will result in a lower cost Sometimes more is better. More vacation days, more good weather, and, in my personal opinion, you can’t go wrong with more bacon cheesefries. The same principal also applies to the amount of material on a reel sent to us for […]

What is the cost for electron beam crosslinking plastic parts?

Polymer crosslinking or modification via e-beam is used for a wide variety of applications such as wire, cable, tubing, sheet products, resin pellets, and discrete parts. Each of these products has its own considerations from size, handling characteristics, dose requirements, and cooling requirements making electron beam throughput and pricing fairly complicated. To try to have […]

What factors affect the price of e-beam crosslinking of cable jacketing?

  To answer this question we have to discuss some of the practical considerations in the e-beam irradiation process. In general, the cost associated with the processing of cable is time—the time it takes to process a reel and the time it takes to splice or change over to the next reel.
