AEI Compounds Limited UK, a leading supplier of polymer compounds for
the International wire and cable industry, has announced the launch of
its newly developed silane crosslinkable, oil resistant, halogen-free
flame retardant (HFFR) compound. SX0620 is a highly flexible, low smoke
and fume sheathing compound for use in offshore, shipboard, industrial
and railway cabling systems.
SX0620, which has been developed to
meet the requirements of IEC 92-359 SHF2 and EN50264 EM104, ship and
railway standards, answers a need for safe, low-smoke and fume cable
sheathing material. In demanding environments such as those in
shipboard, offshore (OPG) marine installations, its zero halogen content
and fire retardant properties contribute to crew and passenger safety.
with SX0612 or SX559 insulated conductors, SX0620 sheathed cables meet
the highest fire retardant and oil resistance performance requirements
while exhibiting rubber like flexibility and excellent cable surface
SX0620 is also suitable for use in heavy industrial
applications and hostile environments where abrasion resistance is
An NEK606 carbo-sea mud-resistant compound is currently under development.
