Sound basis for a long life cycle

In July 2013 the St Gallen University of Applied Sciences (FHS) opened its new University Centre by the main station. The university’s teaching, research and services are enjoying the benefits of the new building, not least the cutting edge technology, including a high-performance Class FA communications network from Datwyler.

“My experience over the past 25 years has always been that a good foundation is essential for long service life”, said Harald Pintarelli, building technology facility services at FHS. “With a view to the defined life cycle, which is between 25 and 30 years for the whole building, and a high level of investment protection, the Cantonal Building Department invited tenders for a Class FA universal communications cabling system providing a standardised bandwidth of 1000 megahertz.”



Relationship goes from strength to strength

Repsol’s Chemicals Division has entered into an agreement to license Chevron Phillips Chemical’s proprietary technology for production of metallocene-based polyethylene resins.


Repsol will be implementing this technology in its existing integrated site in Tarragona, Spain, which already uses Chevron Phillips Chemical MarTECH™ SL Loop Slurry Technology.


“We are pleased to continue our longstanding relationship with Repsol and to provide them with world-class technology to help optimise their polyethylene product portfolio,” said Pawan Bassi, global director of licensing for Chevron Phillips Chemical.



New products for wire and cable portfolio

Huntsman, a manufacturer and developer of polyurethane, has launched a number of new thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU) for the wire and cable industry.

The new products, all available under the Irogran® TPU brand, complement Huntsman’s existing wire and cable portfolio, and enhance the company’s offering in three fields: standard ether solutions; UV stabilised TPUs for offshore applications; and high flame retardant grades aligned to clear market demand for higher safety solutions.

Each new TPU grade was developed following careful market evaluation and extensive discussions with Huntsman’s customers, and each offers outstanding performance and processing properties for the application it was designed for.
