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.
BS 6387
IEC 60331
IEC 60332-1
IEC 60332-3C
IEC 61034-1/2
IEC 60754-1





Fire Resistan NEK606 Water Blocked Offshore & Marine Cable
Water Blocked Fire Resistant Instrumention Cables

Water Blocked S15 BFOU-HCF(i) 250 V
These cables are fire resistant, flame retardant, low smoke and halogen free, used for emergency instrumentation, communication, control and alarm systems that need to be operational during a 1100℃ hydrocarbon fire.

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.
Individual Shielding: Each pairs/triples are screened by copper backed polyester tape in contact with a stranded tinned copper drain wire and wrapped with polyester tape. Pairs/triples are numbered with numbered tape or by numbers printed directly on the insulated conductors.
Filler: Water blocking fillers, if required.
Bedding: Halogen free compound, PETP wrapping tape will be applied over the bedding, if required.
Armour: Tinned copper wire braid, PETP wrapping tape will be applied over the braiding, if required.
Water Blocking Elements: Water blocking tape and strings for providing longitudinal water tightness. l Inner Sheath: Halogen free thermosetting compound, SHF2.
HC-fire protection: Extruded thermoplastic fire protection compound.
Taping: Lapped glass fibre tape.
Outer Sheath 1: Flame retardant halogen-free thermoplastic compound, type SHF1, coloured grey (blue for intrinsically safe).
Outer Sheath 2: Polyurethane for providing transversal water tightness, PE is optional,but can not meet low smoke standard.
