Mechanical and Electrical Test Results of KALINGA XLPE Cables 1.1 KV Grade

XLPE that is Cross linked Polyethylene is the most superior extrudable solid dielectric currently in use i nthe wire and cable industry.

A Non Polar material ,XLPE possesses High insulation resistance and Dielectric Strenght and Low Diellectric Loss characteristics which are independent of both Frequency and temperature.
