FR-LSH - Flame Retardant Low Smoke & Halogen

Home  /  Our Products  /  Wires  /  Single Core  /  FR-LSH
The product manufactured under this category is with advanced properties in the formulation of PVC compound, the Compound has an enhanced property to reduce the toxic smoke generation in case of fire to avoid suffocation and visibility hazards caused in case of ordinary PVC compound.

This product has shown very good results in case of fire in crowded places like hospitals, Malls, Office complex, schools, Cinema halls and other highly crowed places. The measured Oxygen index in product is higher-29% against 25% in case of normal PVC and the Maximum Smoke Density rating value is 60%.

Fire Retardant low smoke Wires & Cables have taken over other conventional wires & cables as fire is creating havoc everywhere in our lives. Awareness for safety against fire has increased with bitter experience where in individuals & the nation have suffered great losses. ACEFLEX has developed & launched FRLS wires & cables to minimize the loss of human lives & property during fire hazards. In case of FRLSH wires the insulation & in case of LT 1.1KV grade cables the outer sheath is specially formulated flame retardant low smoke type PVC Compound having high oxygen & temp. index, with reduced emission of halogen & smoke.
Properties of FRLS PVC Compound
Test Governing Specn. Test Significance Result
Conventional Wire FRLS Wire
Oxygen Index Test ASTM D-2863 Determines the Oxygen concentration in the oxygen/nitrogen mix. in which material burns at room temp. 23< >29
Temp. Index Test ASTM D-2863 & BICC Handbook Determines the temp. at which the Oxygen Index of material becomes 21. <1600C >2500C
Smoke Density Test ASTM D-2843 Indicates the extent to which material is likely to smoke under conditions to active burning & decomposition in the presence of flame >80% <60%
Acid Gas Generation Test IEC 754 - 1 Determines the amount of halogen Acid gas (other than hydro fluoric acid) evolved during combustion of compound. >40% (By wt.) <20% (By wt.)
