The international polymer compounder HEXPOL TPE, specialised in thermoplastic elastomers, has launched new PIN FR materials for performance cable sheathing, with the objective of ensuring high standards of reliability and durability, customisation and easy processing, as well as low toxicity and smoke levels. The DRYFLEX® cable compounds are based on a range of polymers, including EVA, TPE and TPV (ethylene vinyl acetate, thermoplastic elastomers and thermoplastic vulcanizates). The LSZH (low smoke zero halogen) compounds are halogen-free according to IEC 60754 part 1/2. Compounds are available for low voltage, power, data and with specific requirements such as thermal and fluid resistance, and are adapted for applications such as high-rise buildings, aviation, railway, communication data centres, power generation and offshore. They can be processed with standard extrusion equipment, and post-vulcanisation is not required.
