Halogen-Free Flat Cables

 Halogen-Free Flat Cables

Valencia, CA; May 10, 2018: Cicoil, the provider of high performance flexible flat cables now offers halogen-free designs for applications that require non-toxic, corrosive free and environmentally friendly cables.   Free of harmful halogenated compounds, such as astatine, bromine, iodine, fluorine and chlorine, Cicoil’s cables also meet the Air Cleanliness Requirements of ISO 146441 and exceed the outgassing requirements of ASTM E595.   

Typically, electrical cables manufactured with PVC, Neoprene and Fluoropolymers require the addition of halogens to make them flame retardant and to withstand high temperatures.  However, when cables containing halogens are burned, toxic fumes and acidic gases (when bonded with hydrogen) are produced, which sear the eyes, nose, mouth and throat to cause severe respiratory damage, disorientation and even death. 

Fortunately, Cicoil’s proprietary Flexx-Sil™ jacketing material contains zero halogens, no additives and by nature are flame retardant (HFFR), so they are the safer alternative to those cables manufactured with harmful halogens.  Due to its unique mixture of materials, the ultra-pure Flexx-Sil™ does not ignite easily, and if ignited, will not produce black smoke or toxic gas during combustion.  In addition, Cicoil’s crystal-clear, non-corrosive jacket does not contain color additives, plasticizers or CFC’s, which are typically found in most cable jacketing materials.

Cicoil’s Halogen-Free jacketing material has a temperature rating of -65°C to +260°C, and passes UL/CSA VW-1, FT 1 & FT 2, UL 94V-0 flammability testing and FAA burn testing.  In addition, all cables are Class 1 Clean Room Rated and are manufactured in an automated, climate controlled environment.

Cicoil has been a leader in designing and manufacturing high performance cable assemblies for over sixty years. The company's Patented Flexx-Sil™ Flat Cable Technology provides high flexibility, extremely long life, and they can withstand temperature extremes from -65 degrees to +260 degrees Celsius. Cicoil's flat cables are used in thousands of demanding applications; including aircraft fuel control cells, semiconductor automation, and the Space Shuttle. Cicoil designs and manufactures its Flexx-Sil™ jacketed cables and cable assemblies in an automated facility in Valencia, California. Cicoil's quality assurance system is certified to the ISO 9001 (AS9100) standard. Visit www.cicoil.com for more information, or call 661-29
