Introduction

 

Spectra-Strip's high temperature (+150° C) Low Smoke / Halogen Free Zip cable is extruded with a very flame retardant, non-halogenated copolymer, ideal for use in closed environments where ventilation is poor, such as subways, elevators, and ships. It is designed to reduce the generation of toxic and corrosive gases that are emitted from typical PVC insulated cables during combustion. These gases can injure personnel enclosed within these confined spaces and can also corrode delicate components within electronic equipment. Many well-documented cases exist of extensive injury and death occurring as a result of fires involving these PVC generated toxic gasses, e.g., the London Subway fire, the Beverly Hills Supperclub fire, the Dusseldorf Airport fire, and the HMS Sheffield sinking.
