Water Blocked

S16 BFOU-HCF(c) 250 V


Marine cables are partially water blocked, fire resistant, flame retardant, low smoke and halogen free, used for

emergency instrumentation, communication, control and alarm systems that need to be operational during a

1100˚C hydrocarbon fire.


IEC60092 Offshore & Marine Cables


Conductors: Circular tinned stranded copper wire to IEC 60228 class 2.

Insulation: Mica tape + Halogen free EPR compound.

Twinning: Colour coded cores twisted together.

Collective Shielding: Pairs/triples are layed up and collectively screened by copper backed polyester tape in

contact with a stranded tinned copper drain wire. Pairs/triples are numbered with numbered tape or by numbers

printed directly on the insulated conductors.

Filler: Water blocking fillers, if required.

Bedding: Halogen free compound, PETP wrapping tape will be applied over the bedding, if required.

Armour: Tinned copper wire braid, PETP wrapping tape will be applied over the braiding, if required.

Water Blocking Elements: Water blocking tape and strings for providing longitudinal water tightness.

Inner Sheath: Halogen free thermosetting compound, SHF2.

HC-fire protection: Extruded thermoplastic fire protection compound.

Taping: Lapped glass fibre tape.

Outer Sheath 1: Flame retardant halogen-free thermoplastic compound, type SHF1, coloured grey (blue for

intrinsically safe).

Outer Sheath 2: Polyurethane for providing transversal water tightness, PE is optional,but can not meet low

smoke standard.
