High Temperature Cables

SIHF - Silicone Control Cable

Product application:

Suitable where PVC insulated cables become brittle due to high temperature variations. Silicone insulated single cores are commonly used in the metallurgical industry, steel works, hot rolling mills, coking plants, foundries etc. The 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, a silicone dioxide layer will remain on the conductor to render it short circuit proof.

Product characteristic:

Properties:

Advantages
Hardly changes of dielectric strength and the insulation resistance also at high temperatures, high ignition or flash point, in case of fire, forms an insulating layer of SiO2
Resistant to
High molecular oils, fats from vegetables and animals, alcohols, plasticizers and clophenes, diluted acids, lye and salt dissolution, oxidation substances, tropical influences and weather, lake water, oxygen and UV
Halogen-free
According to DIN VDE 0482 part 267/ EN 50267-2-2/ IEC 60754-2 (equivalent DIN VDE 0472 part 813)
Behavior in fire
No flame propagation
Test according to DIN VDE 0482 part 265-2-1/ EN 50265-2-1/ IEC 60332-1 (equivalent DIN VDE 0472 part 804 test method B)
For laying as a fixed installation only in open or ventilated pipe systems as well as in ducts. Otherwise the mechanical properties of the silicon are reduced by the enclosed air at temperatures exceeding 90°C.SIHF - Silicone Control Cable
