Flame Retardant Cables
Flame retardant cables are known to offer resistance to fires from spreading by restraining the process of combustion. Their unique sheath design helps them in inhibiting flames. These cables are designed to stop the propagation of electrical fires. These cables are widely used as fire survival cables because of their relatively lower cost.
Flame retardant cables adhere to IEC 60332-1-2 standards. These cables are chemical resistance and oil resistant. They are available in various sizes up to 2.5 mm²: 2 - 65 cores, from 4 mm²: 2 - 7 cores, from 25 mm²: 2 - 5 cores. The cable has a fine wire strand which is made up of bare copper wires. They have standard PVC insulation in the outer sheath. There are multiple benefits to choosing flame retardant cables over standard electrical wires. These cables offer various options for standardized lengths and individual cuts. They are used for fixed installation and torsional applications especially in wind turbine generators.
are used for industrial machinery heating and air-conditioning power stations. These wires have high flexibility due to short twisted conductor layers. Due to small cable diameters, these cables consume less space in electrical installations.
is one of the popular flame retardant cables. It has a unique Flame Retardant Low Smoke and Halogen capability. These cables are known for their high oxygen index value and self-extinguishing property. It also helps in minimizing the spread of toxic gases and fumes.
