#ndt Cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) is a popular insulation material for medium- and high-voltage (MV and HV) cable production for its low dielectric loss and excellent electrical and physical properties for power transmission.

Prysmian pioneered using HPTE (High Performance Thermoplastic Elastomer) instead of XLPE. HPTE has no cross-linking and no by-products, while it is re-usable, has a shorter production time and is compatible with existing network components. Today, both XLPE and HPTE are used in MV an
