New wire & cable compound range from the polymers group centres on non-halogenated FRs to meet regulatory demands. Hexpol’s new portfolio covers high performance materials such as VMQ (vinyl-methyl-silicone), advanced rubbers (e.g. EPDM ethylene propylene diene monomer) and thermoplastic elastomers, including cable bedding, insulation and sheathing materials, targeting expanding electrification and communications markets including telecoms and high- and low-voltage power supply, as well as sensitive locations such as hospitals, transports, aviation and offshore. Use of PIN flame retardants in Hexpol LSHF/LSZH (low smoke halogen-free / zero halogen) enables achievement of international cable standards such as EN 50363 or IEC 60811 with low-smoke and low-toxicity.
