The Electron Beam Cross Linked (EBXL) wire and cable offer superior performance in demanding application and in extreme environments.
Some of the improved Mechanical Properties are:
Superior performance of wire and cables in demanding applications and in extreme environments
Improved Mechanical Properties:
Tensile strength increases
Stress Cracking Resistance
Flame Propagation Resistance
Cut through Resistance
Typical working of E-Beam:
An Electron Gun is housed in a thick vessel
Number of Electrons as a Beam (Beta Rays) is accelerated in an acceleration tube. Their power can be regulated and controlled
The Electrons are directed to a scanning device magnetically
The Cables are passed under the beam through set of under-beam equipment and given exposure to predetermined doses
Highly accelerated electrons penetrate the insulation or sheath of cables. This results in the generation of carbon radicals which link or cross links the polymer chains of the plastic three dimensionally with each other
Applications of Electron Beam (EB) Technology:
There are several applications where the Electron Beam Technology can be deployed. At Apar, the suitable handling systems have been installed to use the facility for following products. Further identification of applications are being explored
EB cross-linking of wire & cables: The benefits & advantages of EB cross-linking of wire & cables are well established and it is the most important commercial application of radiation technology. EPR/EPDM based formulations that can be cross-linked using EB accelerator have been developed to meet the customer specifications particularly for Railways, Ship wiring, Wind Mill cables, Solar PV cables and Building wires
Heat shrinkable products: This is another important application for production of heat shrinkable products based on shape memory effect. These include cable termination, Bus Bar sleeves, Wrap around, Cable end caps, Breakouts and other moulded components
Rubber sheets and moulded products: The rubber gaskets, rubber sheets, moulded rubber components can be cross-linked to achieve significantly improved mechanical properties without any deformation
Color enhancement of precious stones: The EB technology is widely being used in several countries including in India to enhance the color of precious gem stones like diamonds and topaz. EB irradiation service for diamond coloration as an intermediate process is offered on a commercial basis
EB cross-linking of polyethylene ‘O’ rings: The normal grade of PE cannot withstand operating temperature beyond 70°C unless these O-Rings are cured under Electron Beam for applications requiring dimensional stability under higher operating temperature
Medical Sterlization: EB technology is known globally for being the best method for sterilization (compared to Ethylene Oxide treatment) of various medical products like Stents, Dental implants, Lenses etc.
Degradation of Poly tetra flouro-ethylene (PTFE): It is almost impossible to treat the PTFE scrap. According to market reports, Every year more than 20000 MT of PTFE scrap is generated which needs to be recycled, else its disposal is a major cause of concern. Scrap PTFE can be degraded under Electron Beam and thereafter grinded to fine powder. Fine Powder and Micro-fine powder can be obtained to use as industrial lubricants & coatings as well as for mixing with virgin grade to produce moulded components

Apar’s Uniflex Cables Division is a leading manufacturer of Electrical & Telecommunication cables in India and has been serving its customers since the year 1981 with its wide range of cables. The cable division has 2 plants located at Umbergaon and at Khatalwad (distance between plants about 20 Km) both of them in Gujarat State, India, just 150 kms from Mumbai and is well equipped with advanced manufacturing & testing facilities. The company has set up an Electron Beam Irradiation facility at Khatalwad with 2 E-Beam accelerators of 1.50 MeV and 3.0 MeV with under beam handling system for a wide range of cables and also to handle various other products like Heat Shrink Tubes & components, PE Pipes, Medical products for Sterlization, Gems & Diamonds, Laminated tubes, HDPE pipes up to 200 mm, Reprocessing of PTFE, Packaging and Foam PE sheets etc. This division supplies its cables to various industry segments in India viz., Power Utilities, Petrochemicals, Steel, Cement, Nuclear Power, Defence, Telecommunication, Metros, and Shipbuilding etc. It has accreditation from various consultants and clients like Mazagaon Docks, DRDO, Navy, EIL, IOCL, BPCL, HPCL, MRPL, Toyo Engg, Uhde, Mott Macdonald, PDIL, SAIL, Tata Power, CPRO, RDSO, NPCIL, Suzlon, Gamesa, ABB, Siemens, L&T, Crompton etc. It exports over 25% of its production of various cables to several countries in the Middle East and African continent. The cable division manufacturing facility is accredited with ISO 9001:2008 by DEKRA (NVT KEMA). The cable division has also been accredited with “EXPORT HOUSE” status by ministry of commerce and industry. This cable division was initially incorporated as Uniflex Cables Limited (UCL) in the year 1991. After the amalgamation of UCL with the Company in 2012, the division is carrying its business under the name & style as “Apar Industries Limited (Unit: Uniflex Cables). The cable division has been growing rapidly at a CAGR of >20% during the last 5 years.
