  • Patent number: 11535778
    Abstract: The invention relates to an adhesive film which comprises a layer of an adhesive that comprises one or more polymers and at least one peroxide, characterized in that the adhesive comprises at last 50% by weight of thermoplastic polymers that do not have C?C multiple bonds, in that at least one peroxide has the general structural formula R—O—O—R?, wherein R and R? each represent organyl groups or together represent a cyclic organyl group, and in that the peroxide in solution has a 1-minute half-life temperature of less than 200° C. In a preferred embodiment, the thermoplastic polymer is a polyurethane and the peroxide is a dicumyl peroxide.

  • Patent number: 11466177
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an adhesive tape and to a method for jacketing an elongated item, more particularly cable sets. The adhesive tape must cure within the operational dictates for further processing, e.g. within 6 min, and after curing must exhibit the required dimensional stability properties. However, the adhesive compositions must not cure during storage itself, since otherwise they can no longer be used. Nor may the curing temperatures be too high, since otherwise the lead insulation, which is often made of PVC, may suffer damage.
