Halogen-Free Fire Retardants

A company must achieve standard, non-halogenated fire retardancy on cabling. Methods may include plastic compounds, coatings, polymers, or additives. The UL tests define the fire-retardant properties that the cable must exhibit after treatment — notably, ignition resistance, flame spread resistance after ignition, elimination of burn drips after ignition, low peak smoke release rate, and low total smoke released.
