High Performance Thermal Insulation Material for Electrical Cables
For More Information
Please visit the NineSigma webpage for the High Performance Thermal Insulation Materials for Electrical Cables.
NineSigma, representing a leading cable manufacturer, invites proposals for high performance and durable thermal insulation materials. The successful materials will be applied on electrical cables and must assure the proper working of these cables at operating temperatures up to 350°C and allow 90,000 service hours.
NineSigma’s client produces a range of cables for demanding applications including aerospace. A challenging environment for electrical cables is the proximity to intense sources of heat. Novel developments will need cables to reliably perform under exposure to ever higher temperatures. Moreover as the anticipated lifetime of the electrical systems will increase also the cables should be engineered to last longer.
The project consists of two phases:
Phase 1 – Proof of concept:
Lab evaluation of promising materials, including accelerated durability tests e.g. chemical resistance, mechanical stress and flex testing, electrical testing. Assessment of cable manufacturing aspects.
Phase 2 – Scale up for commercial use:
Implementing the solution in client’s cable manufacturing technology
