Introducing the production of PE-Xb

Polyethylene (PE) is a thermoplastic polymer, which is not itself rigid, or resistant to high temperatures, however, its properties can be improved considerably by crosslinking using the peroxide (PE-Xa), silane (PE-Xb, radiation (PE-Xc) or azo method (PE-Xd). The silane method is used to produce crosslinked polyethylene in a water bath or steam chamber in the presence of silane (SiH4), which is used as a linking agent.
