High Temperature Cables

SiHF-C-Si - Silicone Shielded Double Jacket Multi-Core Cable

Product application:

SiHF-C-Si  is a special 180 Degree C. silicone multi-core cable for use in high and low temperature areas or whenever the insulation is subject to extreme temperature changes.  These cables are mainly found in steel producing industry and aviation industry as well as in ship building, cement, glass and ceramic factories.  SIHF-C-Si cables are low-smoke and halogen-free especially suited for use in power stations.  The silicone jacket provides added heat, chemical, oil and acidic resistance while the internal tinned copper braid shield protects against electromagnetic interference offering disturbance free signals and impulses. Not permitted for outdoor use.
