Paris, May 10, 2012 — Inside alliance partners, Dow Electrical & Telecommunications and Nexans' Energy Cable division in North America, announce the achievement of CSA International certification for power cables manufactured by Nexans using Dow E&T's advanced performance TR-XLPE, Dow Endurance HFDC-4202.

The certification covers four separate cable insulation systems for medium voltage power distribution cables rated for 15 kV to 46 kV with an operating temperature range of 90°C to -40°C. Compliance with the CSA C68.5 requirements reinforces the benefit to utilities of specifying cables that meet high performance standards.

As Dow Inside alliance partners, the intent of Nexans and Dow is to reduce the total life cycle cost of cable ownership for their end use customers while responding to the constantly evolving system requirements of the power transmission and distribution industry. Cables manufactured with Dow Endurance  HFDC-4202 will further reinforce the proven track record of TR-XLPE materials for long-life, reliable MV cables.
