Caledonian fireflix Cables
fireflix cables are constructed in the following typical design:
1. Solid/stranded annealed copper conductor
2. Glass mica tape/silicone rubber as flame barrier
3. XLPE/silicone rubber as insulation
4. LSZH/Flame retardant RPVC as sheath
fireflix cables are offered in either single core, multicore or multi-pair constructions.
The insulation material can be elastomeric (EPR, SR), thermosetting (XLPE, LSZH) or thermoplastic (EVA, LSZH) to meet different stringent environment requirement. The cables may be armoured or braided, with or without metallic screen, depending on different applications.
The fireflix cables manufactured by Caledonian comply with either one or combination of the following standards.
Fire Resistan NEK606 Water Blocked Offshore & Marine Cable
Water Blocked Fire Resistant Instrumention Cables
Water Blocked S14 BU(c) 250 V
These unarmoured cables are partially water blocked, fire resistant, flame retardant, low smoke and halogen free, used for instrumentation, communication, control and alarm systems.

Conductors: Circular tinned annealed stranded copper wire to IEC 60228 class 2.
Insulation: Mica tape + Halogen free EPR compound.
Twinning: Colour coded cores twisted together.
Collective Shielding: Pairs/triples are layed up and collectively screened by copper backed polyester tape in contact with a stranded tinned copper drain wire. Pairs/triples are numbered with numbered tape or by numbers printed directly on the insulated conductors.
Filler: Water blocking fillers, if required.
Water Blocking Elements: Water blocking tape and strings for providing longitudinal water tightness.
Inner Sheath: Halogen free thermosetting compound, SHF2, coloured grey (blue for intrinsically safe).
Outer Sheath: Polyurethane for providing transversal water tightness, PE is optional,but can not meet low smoke standard.
