RADOX® cable technology

RADOX® stands for "radiation X-linked" and describes the process of crosslinking thermoplastic polymers by means of electron beams. HUBER+SUHNER has been using this technology, which was developed in-house, successfully since the 1970s to achieve notable improvements in the thermal, mechanical and chemical properties of the cable insulation material. RADOX® cables do not melt, possess better abrasion resistance and greater cut resistance than conventional cables and, even with thinner insulation, are much more resistant to various environmental factors.

Overview of advantages


  • RADOX® does not melt
  • No drip-off from insulation material in case of short circuit
  • Extended lifetime at lower temperature
  • Less shrinking of insulation material in higher temperature
  • Better heat ageing performance
  • Better fire performance


  • Thinner insulation due to improved mechanical and chemical resistance properties
  • RADOX® withstands temperature peaks
  • Improved abrasion resistance
  • Improved cut through resistance


  • Better environmental resistance (UV, ozone, weathering, water, salt water etc.)
  • Better resistance against liquids (oil, battery acid, grease, AdBlue, solvent resistance and other chemicals)
