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.

According to DIN VDE 0482 part 267/ EN 50267-2-1/ IEC 60754-1 (equivalent DIN VDE 0472 part 815)

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.
