Crosslinked wire and cable products provide outstanding performance

Electron beam crosslinking of wire and cable products enhances strength, thermal stability, abrasion resistance, and environmental resistance. Jacketed wire and cable products are treated by E-BEAM Services, Inc. to meet high-performance standards. Product designers increasingly create smaller footprint components running at higher temperatures and tougher conditions. Electron beamed wire and cable have improved temperature, abrasion […]

OEMs reduce costs with crosslinked plastic tubing and molded parts:

Expensive engineered materials are being replaced with lower cost, e-beam crosslinked polymers which exhibit extraordinary thermal stability and stress cracking resistance. Plastic tubing and molded parts are processed by E-BEAM Services, Inc. to create a permanently crosslinked molecular structure that exhibits outstanding performance reliability, longwear, temperature and chemical resistant characteristics. E-BEAM Services, Inc. treats plastic […]

E-Beam crosslinked sheet products create a higher performing, more appealing product

An electron beam crosslinking process developed by E-BEAM Services, Inc. improves product strength, thermal characteristics, impact resistance, comfort, abrasion resistance, and electrical resistance properties while maintaining excellent color, gauge consistency, and uniform aesthetic appeal. During the e-beam process, sheet and film products pass through a controlled, penetrating curtain of high energy electrons. Unlike chemical crosslinking, […]
