Some of my 74 patents dealt with Wire & Cable Compounds.
During my time as Development Manager at BP Chemicals, I developed formulations on TPOs and partially crosslinked TPOs and PVC-based and non-PVC-based Thermoplastic Elastomers wire and cable compounds including for zero halogen and zero smoke applications and high voltage power cables, low voltage, oil-resistant and other electrical and electronic applications.
During my time as Technical Leader at PolyOne Corp. I developed proprietary TPOs and TPVs based on PP-EPR, PP-EPDM, HDPE-Plastomer, PP-NBR Alloys, NBR-PVC Alloys, and PP-SBR Alloys, and also for wire and cable customer companies to get into new markets including automotive, energy, underwater cables,
In my consulting business I have developed formulations for many different wire and cable compounds based on polyethylene, ethylene copolymers and polypropylene including based on peroxide, dynamic vulcanization and silane-grafted olefin-based moisture curing, providing technology for companies in the USA and other countries.
Compounds based on:
Polyethylenes like HDPE, LLDPE, LDPE, and XLPE (Crosslinked with Radiation, Peroxide and Moisture Curing)
Ethylene Copolymers like EVA, EBA, EMA, SEBS
TPOs, TPVs and other TPEs
Styrenics like ABS< SAN and their Alloys
Nylon & other Engineering Polymers,
Various Alloys like PVC-NBR, NBR-PVC,
Halogenated & Non-Halogenated FRs including Low / Zero Smoke Compounds
Mechanical Properties like Tensile, Elongation, Flexibility / Stiffness, Hardness, Impact & Toughness, Bending, Resistance to Tear & Cracking
Surface Properties such as Gloss, Smoothness, Slipperiness, Adhesion,
