Hffr Cable Compound General Details
HFFR compounds are formulated polymers like PP, PE, EVA, SR, EPR and some special TPE (THERMOPLASTIC ELASTOMER) and used in insulating, bedding and jacketing applications of HFFR cables.
Halogen-free (Halogen-free) cables are known as flame retardant cables during a fire. At the same time, when burned, they do not reveal dense smoke, and do not emit toxic gases harmful to the environment. By using these cables, increasing the safety of the structure is provided. Halogen is a name given to certain elements known as dangerous and poisonous. These elements are chlorine, fluorine, iodine and bromine, etc… The hydrochloride (HCl) revealed when the cables containing halogen are burned releases hydrochloric acid by combining with airborne gases. These acids resulting damage to people and equipment. To eliminate this damage, this type of cable is used.
General features of halogen free cables are;
- Flame retardancy
- Low smoke Density
- No corrosive and toxic gas emission
- Functioning for a long time in fire conditions.
- Continuation of the functionality of cable systems within the specified time in fire conditions
HFFR cable usage areas;
- Shopping centers
- Cinema and theater halls
- Subway and road tunnels
- Mass housing areas
