SiHF Cable

SiHF Cable

Cable Application

Suitable where PVC insulated 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. SiHF cable can be used in dry, moist and wet rooms as well as outdoors at high and low temperatures, as a flexible connecting cable. 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.
