Flame Retardant Cables
Flame retardant cables are known to offer resistanceto fires from spreading by restraining the process of combustion. Their uniquesheath design helps them in inhibiting flames. These cables are designed tostop the propagation of electrical fires. These cables are widely used as firesurvival cables because of their relatively lower cost.
Flame retardant cables adhere to IEC 60332-1-2standards. These cables are chemical resistance and oil resistant. They areavailable in various sizes up to 2.5 mmÂ²: 2 - 65 cores, from 4 mmÂ²: 2 - 7cores, from 25 mmÂ²: 2 - 5 cores. The cable has a fine wire strand which is madeup of bare copper wires. They have standard PVC insulation in the outer sheath.There are multiple benefits to choosing flame retardant cables over standardelectrical wires. These cables offer various options for standardized lengthsand individual cuts. They are used for fixed installation and torsionalapplications especially in wind turbine generators.
are used for industrial machineryheating and air-conditioning power stations. These wires have high flexibilitydue to short twisted conductor layers. Due to small cable diameters, thesecables consume less space in electrical installations.
is one of the popular flame retardant cables. It has a unique Flame RetardantLow Smoke and Halogen capability. These cables are known for their high oxygenindex value and self-extinguishing property. It also helps in minimizing thespread of toxic gases and fumes.
