FERRO INNOVATION DRIVES SAFETY
Our glass-containing safety mass is added directly to silicon polymers, providing a high-performance halogen-free cable insulation alternative that offers flame retardant properties with minimal smoke and corrosive gas emissions.  
In the event of a fire, glass/silicon cable insulation sinters to form a solid ceramic coating, keeping the insulation on core of the cable intact with no short circuiting or current interruption. 


FERRO GLASS-CONTAINING SILICON ADVANTAGES 

  • Extremely high weather and UV resistance
  • Very good flexibility
  • Very high stability against high temperature of surroundings
  • Zero halogens
  • No toxic components or decomposition products (even in case of fire or smoldering fire)
  • Reduces the need for costly and complicated mica winding equipment 

FERRO GLASS/SILICON SAFETY CABLE INSULATION AND FUNCTIONALITY PROPERTIES*

  Maintaining of Insulation  Maintaining of Function 
Test norm  DIN VDE 0472 part 814 IEC 331  DIN 4102 part 12
Test conditions  Test of a straight short piece of cable without fixing at 750° C without mechanical stress  Test of a complete cable system including fixing device at more than 1000 deg. C 

* German standard DIN4102 part 12 seeks to ensure the continued operation of cable systems in fires up to 1000°C; In single European countries, different laws and regulations are valid with various test conditions. As changes to existing regulations and laws are possible, we recommend testing according to country-specific regulations and adapting the silicon/glass mixture to the requirements each respective country.
