Infrared Curing for Silicone

The fire resistance of cables in public buildings such as airports or hospitals, follows strict guidelines. In the event of a fire, every second counts. To evacuate all people safely, the basic functions of a building must stay intact for as long as possible.

Thanks to its high temperature resistance, low smoke emission, zero halogen content and nontoxic substances, silicone is an ideal insulation and jacketing material for cables used in fireproof applications such as elevators or alarm systems. The quality standards that need to be fulfilled for integrity (DIN 4102-12) and insulation (IEC60331, EN50200 and BS6387) are met by every safety cable produced on a silicone line available from Rosendahl Nextrom GmbH, Pischelsdorf, Austria.
