High Temperature, Flame & Fire Resistant Flat Cables
Excel in Temperatures as High as 260°C/500°F
Meet both UL-94V-0 and FAA Vertical Burn standards related to flammability and is confirmed to be self-extinguishing.
Flame Resistance Demo
Cicoil cables meets both UL-94V-0 and FAA Vertical Burn standards related to flammability and is confirmed to be self-extinguishing.
Greater Current Carrying Capacity
Cicoil isolates each conductor within the cable, keeping them stable and stationary with no need for low-friction tapes or fillers. These flat cables have greater surface-to-volume ratio than their round cable counterparts, consequently having higher efficiency in dissipating heat. This allows a higher current level for a given temperature rise and conductor cross-section.
Exposure to Heat
Visually, yellowness is associated with scorching, soiling, and general product degradation by light, chemical exposure, and processing. When compared to PC, Cyclic Olefin Polymer (COP), and PMMI having been exposed to 160°C (320°F) over a period of 0 hours, 170 hours, 500 hours and finally, 6,500 hours, Flexx-Sil™ was the only material that maintained a Yellowness Index of less than 5 after extreme exposure to heat over time. All other materials compensated their structure after such exposure.
