Title
(EN) SURFACE TREATMENT FOR TPU JACKETS
(FR) TRAITEMENT DE SURFACE POUR GAINES DE POLYURÉTHANE THERMOPLASTIQUE (TPU)
Abstract
(EN)
Exemplary implementations of the present invention address at least the above problems and/or disadvantages and other disadvantages not described above. Also, the present invention is not required to overcome the disadvantages described above, and an exemplary implementation of the present invention may not overcome any of the problems listed above. A first embodiment of the invention is a method of manufacturing a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU)-jacketed cable including: producing a cable with a TPU jacket; applying an aqueous solution to the TPU jacket; and providing an air flow over the TPU jacket so that a film forms on the TPU jacket; wherein the aqueous solution is a solution comprising at least one of stearate, glycerin soap and sodium salt and wherein the concentration of the solution is approximately two to six percent. A second embodiment of the invention is a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) jacketed cable including a cable with a TPU jacket; and an aqueous solution film on the TPU jacket; wherein the film includes at least one of stearate, glycerin soap and sodium salt.

Des modes de réalisation donnés à titre d'exemple traitent au moins des problèmes et/ou inconvénients à la fois cités et non cités dans la description. La présente invention n'a pas pour objet de résoudre les inconvénients cités dans la description et un mode de réalisation de la présente invention peut ne résoudre aucun des problèmes listés. Dans un premier mode de réalisation, l'invention concerne un procédé de production de câble gainé de polyuréthane thermoplastique (TPU) consistant : à produire un câble avec une gaine de TPU ; à appliquer une solution aqueuse sur la gaine de TPU ; et à utiliser un écoulement d'air sur la gaine TPU de telle sorte qu'un film se forme sur cette dernière ; la solution aqueuse étant une solution comprenant au moins un stéarate, un savon de glycérine et un sel de sodium et la concentration de la solution étant approximativement de 2 à 6%. Dans un second mode de réalisation, l'invention concerne un câble à gaine de polyuréthane thermoplastique (TPU) comprenant un câble et une gaine TPU ; et un film de solution aqueuse appliqué sur la gaine TPU ; le film comprenant au moins un stéarate, un savon de glycérine et un sel de sodium.
