Enabling global transformation
Dow introduced “HFDD 4201”, a new technology that is part of the “Endurance” family of “Next Gen XLPE” compounds for power transmission. “HFDD 4201” has the potential to transform the cable manufacturing process by cutting down long degassing periods by 80%. Cable manufacturers will benefit from: Shorter cycle times in the manufacturing process, lower inventory costs and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. The “HFDD 4201” is a response to the ever-increasing demand for power while reducing the potential impact on the environment and economic costs.
