Glomax™ For electrical insulation in medium to high voltage cables and improved processing in extruded parts
- High stability and purity
- Highly insulating
- Low moisture pick-up
- Excellent processability
- Low compression set
Imerys Glomax™ is a high purity calcined kaolin designed to provide low conductivity for medium and high voltage electrical applications where volume resistivity is crucial.
Wire & Cable
Glomax™ imparts excellent insulation properties in medium and high voltage power cables.
Due to its low moisture pick-up, it is a particularly good choice for guaranteeing insulation properties under wet operating conditions.
Glomax™ also improves compression set, making it suitable for the production of rubber cable sheathing of flexible cable.
Used in partial replacement of ATH or MDH in halogen-free cables it provides superior flame retardancy, abrasion and oil resistance while maintaining good electrical properties.
Glomax™ is a valuable processing aid in extruded and calendered rubber where it confers a very smooth finish and excellent dimensional control due to the low die swell it imparts.
Glomax™ is recommended for:
- Wire and cable
- EPDM/EPR extruded profiles
- Pharmaceutical rubber
We offer a full range of bespoke formulation and technical and process support services to help you match the right mineral grade to your application requirement.
