UNIGARD™ RE DFDE-1638 NT Flame Retardant Compound

A non-halogen, highly flame retardant, thermoplastic, low smoke, low corrosivity, and low toxicity compound. Used as jacket, it passes the IEEE-383/UL-1581/UL-1685 [Limited Smoke Test] vertical tray cable burn tests. Cable construction, of course, plays an important role in flame performance. It can be used as a jacket on cables operating at up to 90°C. This compound can replace PVC, low smoke PVC, and halogenated rubbers as a jacket with excellent fire safety (low smoke, low corrosivity, and low toxicity) and good property balance. This compound meets or exceeds many of industry jacket specifications such as UL-1277 Tray Cable. As a non-halogen flame retardant jacket, this product is also designed to replace conventional non-halogen jacket products. It can withstand an extrusion temperature up to 180°C, and can be extruded with typical single-flight metering PE screws.

Uses:

  • General purpose cable jacket applications

Benefits:

  • Highly flame retardant
  • Environmentally friendly ( lead free, halogen-free, sulfur/ antimony-free)
  • Low smoke, low corrosivity and low toxicity
  • Ease of extrusion and no special screw required
  • Good balance of toughness and flexibility
