SID Cable

SID Cable

Cable Application

Suitable where PVC insulated cables become brittle due to high temperature variations. Silicone insulated single cores are frequently used in the metallurgical industry, steel works, hot rolling mills, coking plants, foundries etc. Applications can include the internal wiring of equipment, appliances, control cabinets, ceramics and foundries where high temperatures occur. 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.
