  • Scope of Study To determine the best way of Compounding of CPE Formulation for Cables used in Robotics Welding by Enhancing the Actual UL 94 V-1 Cables to UL 94 V-0 by using non Halogenated Fire Retardant. The Cables were Crosslinked In a high-power Electron Beaming Equipment for a more environmental friendly Process without yielding noxious volatiles and chemical byproducts that would need to be removed Approach The Dry mix of formulation has been produced in a Heavy duty Ribbon Blender AJDR Series completing the wet mix in a Moryiama MS Type Dispersion Mixer. From the Mixer the batch was extruded in a Dual Screw Electron Beam Technology Build Extruder (2” Wide Ribbon). The Ribbon was Flattened in a Farrell Mill and Electron Beamed in an NISSIN High voltage equipment that functions up to 1.50 MV level. The level of radiation, of the four samples, used to Produce Formulations pertinent to UL 94 V-0 was 15 MR established in the Initial Study presented in this Paper were three level of radiation were employed:10 MR, 15MR and 20 MR Analysis The samples have been analyzed by Vertical Test UL 94 Standard Method Measuring the Comparative Burning Characteristics of Solid Plastics, DSC, Gel Content Equipment per ASTM D-2765, ATS Extensometer, for Physical, Thermal and Burning Resistance properties, SEM/EDX
