High Temperature Cables

SID/GL - Silicone Single Core Glass fiber braid Solid Conductor Cable

Product application:

Suitable where PVC insulated cables become brittle due to high temperature variations. Silicone insulated single cores are preferably used in the metallurgical industry, steel works, hot rolling mills, coking plants, foundries etc. Insulation consists of silicone rubber. It is resistant to vegetable and animal fat, many types of oil and diluted acids. No decomposition occurs when exposed to alcohol, alkaline solutions, etc. The insulation is resistant to oxygen and ozone. Should the cable burn, an insulation silicone dioxide layer will remain on the conductor to render it short circuit proof. Suitable for fixed installation.
