4 Typically crosslinked acrylates, superabsorbent polymers (SAP) absorb and retain at least 200x their own weight Definition Introduction 3

5 Water diffuses into the SAP particle by:  Capillary action  Osmotic pressure Absorption Introduction 4

6 The dry SAP changes into a flexible but resistant hydrogel by absorbing water Swollen SAP Swelling and Blocking Introduction Dry SAP 5

7 Absorption Phase Incoming water is absorbed and retained so its free flow is hindered. A fast and high absorption is beneficial at this step. Blocking Phase Swollen SAP has to be impermeable to stop the water- transport from gel-particle to gel-particle. Gel-strength and gel-stability are more important than capacity or speed. Dry SAP Impermeable stable hydrogel Steps of Sealing Introduction 6

8  The permeability of SAP determines how water is transported in a layer of swollen SAP  The water transport happens through microscopic channels between the hydrogel particles The permeability is mainly influenced by:  Shape (form and surface) of SAP particles  Gel strength (rheology/viscosity) of SAP Permeability Introduction 7

9 Hydrated gel strength is very important:  A high and fast absorbing SAP does not provide good sealing properties for the expected life of the cable.  Swollen SAP creating an impermeable hydrogel, with excellent gel- stability is required for good water-blocking properties Hydrated Gel Strength Introduction 8

11 Powder SAP Incorporated onto various components via direct application methods:  fluidized bed  electrostatic deposition  vibratory deposition Liquid/HMA SAP Incorporated onto various components via:  spray coating/printing  dip coating Application Forms Product Processing 10

12 Powder/Liquid/HMA SAP Waterblocking functionality can be added via:  non-woven laminates  yarns and binders  filling or flooding compounds  hot-melts  other cable components Application Forms Product Processing 11

13  Introduction to SAP  SAP Application Forms  Cable Applications  Benefits  SSA: Your Supply Partner 12

14 Utilized in a variety of cable types:  Power cables  Fiber-optic cables  Coaxial cables  Copper Telephone cables Especially suited for outdoor applications  Underwater cables  Underground cables  Indoor/outdoor - FR Cable Applications Cable Types and Locations 13

15 Braided shield blocking Required application technology is common in the industry Shield Blocking Cable Applications 14

16 Strand blocking Strand Blocking Cable Applications 15

17 Water blocking functionality is incorporated in cable tapes that focus on diverse demands  Separation between conductor / conductor shield / insulation  Cushioning between insulation / metal screen  Core binding  Heat barrier  Prevention of filling compound dripping out from the core Cable Tape Function Cable Applications 16

18 Tape wrapping unit Polymers in Swellable Tapes Cable Applications 17

19  Introduction to SAP  SAP Application Forms  Cable Applications  Benefits  SSA: Your Supply Partner 18

20 Streamlined Cable Manufacturing Process  Faster line speeds / cleaner process  Usage volume is a fraction of what it replaces (i.e. filling / flooding compounds) Improved Cable Installation  Smaller diameter  Lighter weight  Easier cable pulls both aerial and underground / conduit Significant Reduction in Cable Prep / Splice Time  Lowers cost of initial installation  Reduces emergency cable outage / restoration time Cablers / Installers/ End Users Benefits 19

21 Improves Cable Life Cycle  Effective sealing of defects localizing water damage  Replacement of gel eliminates damage due to oxidation  Insoluble x-linked polymers insure long term stability Environmentally-friendly / neutral  SAP is non-toxic and can be placed in land-fills  SAP is used in agricultural applications for soil amendment Benefits Cablers / Installers/ End Users 20
