“In an interwoven, complex and digital world, reliable and high performing power and telecommunications infrastructures are fundamentals to the development and economic growth of a country. Technology has transformed human advancement, and it is imperative for our solutions to match that level of sophistication that facilitates continuous progress. Our expanding portfolio of innovative materials in the power transmission, telecommunications and halogen-free flame retardant (HFFR) cable industries will enable our customers’ investments in each respective field, as we jointly create a more sustainable future for the next generation,” said Bambang Candra, Asia Pacific commercial vice president for Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics.

Reliable Solutions for the Power Industry

With increased urbanization and electricity consumption from digital systems worldwide, power utilities are turning to underground and undersea high voltage (HV) and extra-high voltage (EHV) power “superhighways.” To support such complex infrastructures, Dow brings to the market a comprehensive set of solutions of world-class compounds and technology with long-term reliability to ensure long-life cable performance while reducing total life-cycle costs.

Dow’s suite of power solutions, ENDURANCE™ compounds for cable system, is a family of insulation, semi-conductive and jacketing materials for HV, EHV and High Voltage direct current (HVDC) cable constructions that provide reliable performance with greater transmission capacity at higher voltages. The latest solution, ENDURANCE™ HFDC-4201 SC, offers exceptional cleanliness, fast degassing and scorch-resistant for long-running extrusion cable especially in HV submarine cables.

High-speed Solutions for Telecommunications

Technological advancements in cloud computing, the Internet of Things and video streaming have significantly transformed the telecommunications industry. While the requirements have rapidly changed, the focus continues to be on the delivery of speedier networks. The wide range of telecommunications solutions from Dow offers reliable short-distance data transmission with copper data cable with improved performance through low loss at high frequencies, and long-distance as well as high-speed fiber optic cable solutions that provide good protection with ease of installation.

AXELERON™ telecom cable compounds for jacketing of fiber optic cable increase efficiency for cable manufacturers and reduce total cost of ownership for telecom operators. AXELERON™ 6924 for CAT 6a/7 data cable offers high expansion rates of 40 to 70 percent and uniform foam structure for stable signal transmission and high speeds with improved production efficiency by enabling line speeds of 1,400 m/min.

One-Stop Shop for Halogen-free FR

New regulations across the globe are prompting cable manufacturers to adopt low-smoke, zero-halogen (LSZH) materials for insulation and jacketing. In addition to high performance FR compounds, Dow’s robust offering of polar and non-polar polyolefin resins and elastomers and silicone additives also provides formulators a single source for basic and advanced HFFR components.
