Low smoke, halogen-Free cable compounds
To address increasing demands on power and telecommunications infrastructure, we’ve developed materials for cable sheathing, bedding and insulation applications. The Dryflex Cable compounds are designed to meet the highest levels of durability, performance and human safety.
The range includes grades based on different polymer chemistries, including EVA, TPE and TPV technologies. This brings one of the widest ranges of properties and customisation possibilities to the market and gives cable manufacturers the flexibility to select the best solution for their application.
Improved fire performance with low toxicity
Cables manufactured using Dryflex Cable compounds provide added security in areas of high human occupancy, where people need to be evacuated quickly and safely. They can also be used in restricted areas containing expensive or sensitive equipment. These could include high-rise buildings, hospitals, airport, train and transport hubs, communication exchanges, data centres, shopping centres, power generation facilities and offshore platforms.
They offer excellent thermomechanical properties making them suitable for both telecommunication and electric cables. Typical applications include sheathing, bedding and insulation in electrical, data, control system and telecommunication cables.

Anatomy of a Cable
The Dryflex Cable compounds can be processed using standard extrusion equipment. Compounds are available ready to use, with no post vulcanisation required, helping to minimise steps and improve productivity. The compounds are recyclable in closed-loop systems, and any production waste can be reprocessed.
