Addivant™ launches innovative liquid antioxidant for the wire & cable industry

Addivant announced the launch of LOWINOX® FAST XL, the next generation liquid antioxidant solution for the production of medium and high-voltage cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) cables.

Developed to meet the challenges faced by the cable industry, LOWINOX® FAST XL delivers new levels of productivity and cable consistency helping lower the total cost of ownership for the cable industry.

LOWINOX® FAST XL has been designed to provide an optimal balance between scorch protection and crosslinking speed to enable cable manufacturers to increase line speeds, improving productivity gains without comprising on the reliability and quality which is critical for cable longevity.

Manufactured in Germany, LOWINOX® FAST XL meets all of the necessary quality and high cleanliness standards needed for today’s medium, high and extra high voltage XLPE compounds.

“LOWINOX® FAST XL has been extensively researched and tested, confirming that it overcomes the handling and consistency issues related to the use of conventional liquid antioxidants,” said John Steitz, Addivant’s president and CEO.

To meet the growing demand for cables in the energy, ICT, and transportation sectors, suppliers are increasingly asked to deliver systems which provide high reliability, cost effectiveness, safety and a minimized environmental impact.
