PolyOne Corporation, a global provider of specialized polymer materials, services and solutions, has worked with LEONI Special Cables GmbH to improve the durability and function of communication cables for oil and gas rigs with ECCOH High Performance Solutions. Technical support from PolyOne also enabled LEONI to accelerate time-to-market for the specialty cables.
The cable sheathing formulation developed by PolyOne helped us to produce tougher, more chemically resistant cables for extreme conditions, while also meeting our high standards for quality and enabling strict regulatory compliance, said Peter Gerstenberger, vice president for the Industrial Solutions business unit at LEONI.
Available globally, ECCOH low smoke and fume, non-halogen (LSFOH) flame-retardant materials are well suited for settings where smoke mitigation is of particular concern. ECCOH formulations also span the full range of processing options, enabling customers to match their production environment needs for heightened efficiency.
By working closely with LEONI we developed a highly-technical solution that offered the additional chemical resistance and durability they required, commented Craig Nikrant, president, Global Specialty Engineered Materials, PolyOne Corporation. It’s yet another great example of how PolyOne strives to deliver solutions that help our customers succeed.
