Catalyst masterbatches for XLPE

Different grades of XLPE compound need to be mixed with catalyst masterbatches, by the 95:5 ratios which will optimize cross-linking rate.
Cross-linking process is completed by immersion in hot water or exposed to low pressure steam at a temperature up to 90 c. cross-linking time is depending on insulation thickness, reel size, temperature and humidity.
