New non-halogen flame retardant cable insulation

Borealis A/S : 16 March, 2000  (New Product)
The competition, which requires a prediction to the behaviour of fire on a cable ladder with attached cables, is split into two parts. The first is a game of chance which will run during the exhibtiion for visitors to the stand. The second requires taking a more considered approach and is aimed at organisations, such as research institutes, consultancies, universities and cable producers and requires, in addition to predicting the results, development of a procedure for calculation which in theory could be subjected to a form of accreditation. The test itself will take place at the Borealis Fire Testing Facility in Zwijndrecht, near Antwerp, Belgium on May 2, 2000.
Borealis will present a unique competition at Wire 2000 linked to the company's non-halogenated, flame retardant materials for building/industrial cables.

The competition, which requires a prediction to the behaviour of fire on a cable ladder with attached cables, is split into two parts. The first is a game of chance which will run during the exhibtiion for visitors to the stand. The second requires taking a more considered approach and is aimed at organisations, such as research institutes, consultancies, universities and cable producers and requires, in addition to predicting the results, development of a procedure for calculation which in theory could be subjected to a form of accreditation. The test itself will take place at the Borealis Fire Testing Facility in Zwijndrecht, near Antwerp, Belgium on May 2, 2000.

The cables to be used in the fire test and displayed on the stand are produced from the company's range of easily extrudable products. They are based mainly on the patented Casico concept - calcium carbonate + silicone gum + oxygen containing copolymer (EBA or EEA). Thermoplastic as well as moisture crosslinkable compounds, based on Visico, are also available. In addition to ready-made compounds, Borealis can also supply the components and licencing arrangements for self-compounding and in-house, tailor-made grades. Importantly, the relative low cost of the filler calcium carbonate makes the technology attractive and cost competitive as an alternative to PVC.
