With the increasing level of urbanization, people’s work and life rhythm is accelerating, and people’s awareness of safety and environmental protection is also increasing. Wires and cables are closely related to the lives of residents, and consumers are increasingly demanding the safety and environmental performance of wires and cables.
Wire and cable companies have also begun to attach importance to the development and production of environmentally friendly wires and cables. So what is environmentally friendly wires and cables? Do you need to use environmentally friendly wires and cables in ordinary home decoration? Let’s take a look at environmentally friendly wires and cables.
What is an environmentally friendly cable?
Environmentally friendly wire and cable means that it does not contain heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, mercury, etc., and does not contain bromine-based flame retardants. It has been tested by SGS recognized testing agencies for environmental performance and meets the EU Environmental Protection Directive (RoSH) and is higher than its index Claim.
The environmentally friendly wire and cable does not produce harmful halogen gas or corrosive gas after burning, and generates less smoke during combustion, does not pollute the soil, and will not cause harm to the environment after the wire and cable are discarded. The low-smoke halogen-free flame-retardant cable we often say is a kind of environmentally friendly wire and cable.
What are the advantages of environmentally friendly wires and cables? What characteristics?
Environmental protection and no pollution:
The insulating materials and sheath materials used for environmentally friendly wires and cables are green and environmentally friendly materials, and do not contain heavy metals such as lead, hexavalent chromium, mercury, and cadmium that have harmful effects on the environment. So that it will not pollute the soil and the surrounding environment. And after harsh toxicity experiments, the mice were safe under the specified experimental conditions.
Has good low-smoke and halogen-free characteristics:
Environmentally friendly wire and cable materials do not contain halogens such as chlorine, bromine, and fluorine. Under emergency conditions (such as electrical accidents and fires), they do not produce harmful or corrosive gases, and emit less smoke during combustion. Can minimize the harm to the human body to ensure the user’s own health and safety.
Has good flame retardancy:
The flame-retardant and fire-resistant performance of environmentally friendly wires and cables fully complies with national standards. Wire and cable are not easy to burn and do not ignite when an electrical fire occurs. At the same time, under continuous combustion, they can ensure the normal operation of the circuit system for a certain period of time, and can greatly reduce the wires. The flame spread after the cable burns.
Environmentally friendly wires and cables can be recycled and reused or buried or incinerated after being discarded without harming or destroying the environment.
With high light transmittance:
The smoke produced when the environmental protection cable is burning is extremely thin, which is helpful for the victims to distinguish the safety exit and the firefighters’ firefighting work quickly. The light transmittance of environmental protection cables is greater than or equal to 60%, which is much higher than that of traditional flame retardant cables.
With strong waterproof and anti-corrosion performance:
The use of environmentally friendly materials with special molecular structure ensures ultra-low water absorption and special ultraviolet absorbers, which can prevent the weathering speed and degree of wire and cable exposed to the outside to a certain extent, while slowing the speed of wire and cable aging and extending the cable The service life can be up to 70 years.
