Caledonian FIREFLEX Cables
FIREFLEX cables are constructed in the following typical design:
1. Solid/stranded annealed copper conductor
2. Glass mica tape/silicone rubber as flame barrier
3. XLPE/silicone rubber as insulation
4. LSZH/Flame retardant RPVC as sheath
FIREFLEX cables are offered in either single core, multicore or multi-pair constructions.
The insulation material can be elastomeric (EPR, SR), thermosetting (XLPE, LSZH) or thermoplastic (EVA, LSZH) to meet different stringent environment requirement. The cables may be armoured or braided, with or without metallic screen, depending on different applications.
The FIREFLEX cables manufactured by Caledonian comply with either one or combination of the following standards.
Fire Resistan NEK606 Water Blocked Offshore & Marine Cable
Water Blocked Fire Resistant Power and Control Cables
Water Blocked P30 RFOU-HCF / TFOU-HCF 6/10(12) kV
These cables are partially water blocked, fire resistant, flame retardant, low smoke and halogen free, used for emergency control, power and lighting systems that need to be operational during a 1100˚C hydrocarbon fire.
