New crosslinkable and HFFR compounds for demanding wire & cable applications

News 26.07.2018

At Wire Düsseldorf 2018, Padanaplast introduced a range of new Cogegum® AFR and Cogegum® GFR wire and cable compounds incorporating an advanced halogen-free flameretardant (HFFR) technology. The new materials meet the strict requirements of EU Regulation 305/2011 for buildings Construction Products Regulation (CPR) and ISO 6722 for automotive cables.

Fire incidents involving halogenated plastics can have a severe impact on the health and safety of affected people as well as on the structural integrity of buildings or, for example, on the properties of metals in end-of-life vehicle recycling. There is a growing demand for materials that will effectively minimize the hazards of toxic fumes, disorienting thick smoke and corrosivity in the case of a fire. Important provisions and standards governing these requirements include EU Regulation 305/2011 for buildings, also known as Construction Products Regulation (CPR).

Padanaplast, specializing in crosslinkable polyolefin compounds for use in wires and cables, pipes and fittings, has developed a range of new Cogegum® extrusion materials designed to eliminate these risks.

At Wire 2018, Padanaplast introduced five new CPR-compliant Cogegum® HFFR grades for building & construction and two special HFFR grades targeted at applications in automotive. Except for one all-thermoplastic sheathing grade, all these compounds are silane crosslinkable products of the Cogegum® GFR series based on Sioplas® process technology. The offering is further differentiated by application specifications, such as cable construction or enhanced resistance to fire and chemicals. In addition to two grades for T3 (125°C) automotive insulation for primary wiring applications, there is also a sheathing compound (Cogegum® GFR 380) providing enhanced flexibility and resistance to mineral oils and fuels for applications in railway, marine and the chemical and oil industry.

Padanaplast compounds can be processed on most common extrusion lines, and all products conform to RoHS requirements according to EU Directive 2002/95/EC.
