    SI Group Solutions for Wires and Cables

      

SI Group's portfolio of antioxidants, polymer modifiers, and UV stabilizers is explicitly designed for the wire and cable industry. These polymer stabilizers are vital in improving production processing and expanding the lifespan of wires and cables. 

Stabilization is crucial for highly demanding applications such as wire and cable, and this can be achieved by managing free radicals. Primary antioxidants trap the free radicals, and secondary antioxidants decompose the peroxides formed during the thermal phase. UV light stabilizers protect against photooxidation, and polymer modifiers improve strength over the polymer's lifetime. 

Explore the following SI Group grades that offer superior effectiveness as antioxidants, UV light stabilizers, and polymer modifiers.
