Rosendahl is constantly investing in its cable manufacture technology. Their decision to deal with liquid-cooled extruders and silicone was therefore rather inherent. With this new manufacturing solution, they are ringing in a new round in their product development.

The properties you have to consider when dealing with silicone as a material are quite different from those of the polymers. A perfect crosslinking process is the end-all and be-all in order to keep the material stable and process it into a cable with the requisite mechanical properties. In so doing, the extruded cable is treated at temperatures from 600°C to 800°C.

The RN-Z Silicone Extrusion Line has been in operation ...

A Florida entrepreneur who tried twice before to buy the Georgetown steel mill says he's again interested in acquiring the mill and preventing it from permanently shutting its doors this summer.

Joseph Wortley of Boca Raton, Fla., plans to meet with plant officials and tour the mill this week, he has announced.  "That plant deserves to live and be producing steel," Wortley said. "This is not just a whim. My family was in the steel business for 80 years. I grew up in the steel business."

The mill's owner, ArcelorMittal, announced earlier this month it will close the mill by the end of August, leaving 226 workers without jobs. The company said the mill can no longer complete with foreig ...
