Teknor Apex Co. reports it has new halogen-free flame retardant jacketing with exceptionally high protection without compromising other properties.
The Halguard 58300 series is aimed at data center cables, control cables, energy cables and other demanding applications, the Pawtucket, R.I., company states. It has high oxygen-limiting index and can achieve a UL94 rating of V-O with test specimens as thin as 0.025 inch. Grades are available with Shore D hardness of 48 to 52.
Server farms operated by Internet companies demand very high flame retardance. Teknor Apex vinyl division manager Michael Roberts claims the new compounds are the most flame retardant HFFR compound on the market not made with halogen flame retardants.
