- High stability and purity
- Highly insulating
- Low moisture pick-up
- Excellent processability
- Low compression set
Imerys PoleStar™ is a high purity fully calcined kaolin. It is calcined at above 1000°C to give a particle shape and morphology that is suited to a wide range of rubber applications.
PoleStar™ is particularly suitable for EPDM cable insulation and light colored extruded rubber profiles.
Wire & Cable
PoleStar™ imparts excellent insulation properties in low and medium voltage power cables. Due to its low moisture pick-up, it is a particularly good choice for guaranteeing insulation properties under wet operating conditions.
PoleStar™ 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.
PoleStar™ is a valuable processing aid in for extruded and calendered rubber where it confers a very smooth finish and excellent dimensional control due to the low die swell it imparts
PoleStar™ is recommended for:
- Wire and cable
- EPDM/EPR extruded profiles
- Pharmaceutical rubber
