Product Description
Borlink LC8205R is a crosslinkable natural polyethylene compound based on Supercure technology, specially designed for insulation of energy cables.

Applications
Borlink LC8205R is intended for insulation of XLPE power cables with rated voltages up to 72 kV. It is designed for cable constructions with bonded insulation shields.

Specifications
Borlink LC8205R meets the applicable requirements as below when processed using sound extrusion practices and testing procedures

  • Cenelec HD 620 S1, Part 1, table 2A, DIX 3 to 14
  • IEC 60502-2
  • DIN VDE 0276-620
  • IEC 60840
  • GOSTR 55025-2012

Special Features
Borlink LC8205R is a ready-to-use natural co-polymer compound. It provides superior electrical performance (polymer WTR XLPE) meeting the most stringent wet ageing requirements. It offers excellent scorch resistance, long production runs and high line speed potential. Borlink LC8205R cleanliness level is assured through the Borealis quality control system.
