After thorough mixing and heating, the raw materials need be extruded and shaped through a certain sized die head. The workshop can adjust its temperature and tension according to different types of products. Meanwhile, the workshop can examine the inside diameter, wall thickness, color and appearance of the extruded heat shrink tubing every 30 minutes according to production quality requirements and make sufficient preparation for the following processes.
Irradiation is the process which breaks down the molecular structure of raw materials using a certain dose of plasma laser radiation, and then cross links the broken molecular structure into a tighter one. The irradiated process effectively improves the physical and chemical performances of the tubing and makes the tubing able to recover when heating after expanding. For environmental protection, the irradiated accelerator needs to be buried underground deeper than 20 meters so as to prevent leakage of the irradiated rays, and regular maintaining and repairs are necessary.
The bore of the irradiated cross-linked tubing will be expanded by external forces when reaching a relatively high temperature. In this way, the shape of the expanded tubing will be properly fashioned. CYG has 138 pieces of self-developed expansion equipment currently, which is one of the largest reasons for our success with high efficiency production.
Polyolefin is a type of olefin polymers, or a kind of thermoplastic resin which is polymerized/copolymerized with some cycloolefin and α-olefin, such as ethylene, propylene, 1-butylene, 1-amylene, 1-hexylene, 1-octylene and 4-methyl-1-pentene
