Silicone Cable SIA SIAF & SIAF-GL
Our silicone cables are designed for use in environments with sustained temperature extremes or fluctuations, making them suitable for a range of industrial applications such as power plants, refrigeration, food processing, ships and aircrafts, furnaces and ovens, steel mills and casting houses. these cables are also widely used in the Oil, Gas & Petrochemicals industry.
Eland Cables supplies a comprehensive range of silicone cables, including SIA (H05S-U), SIAF (H05S-K) and SIAF-GL, with a temperature range of -60oc to +180oC. These cables are suitable for applications where low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) properties are required such as public buildings, and for the protection of human lives or sensitive equipment in the event of a fire.
The voltage rating of our silicone cables is 300/500V for core sizes up to 6mm2 and 600/1000V on larger sizes, when protected.
Silicone cable properties
In addition to our silicone cables' stability at extreme temperatures, some of their other unique properties include:
|Exceptional insulation||High dielectric strength and moisture resistance ensuring the long-term reliability of the cables, even in moist and corrosive conditions|
|Weather resistant||Ozone, UV light, and radiation resistant|
|Lightweight||Lighter weight than comparable cables with plastic or rubber insulation|
|Organically inert||Silicone rubbers do not support organic growth (eg. fungal, bacterial, etc) making them ideal for the food and medical industries|
|Flame retardant||Compliant with various flame test requirements and standards|
Silicone - SIA cables - H05S-U
SIA cables have a solid single core, hence their lower levels of flexibility than their SIAF equivalents:
The construction of SIA cables is as follows:
|Conductor||Solid tinned copper (class 1)|
Silicone - SIAF cables - H05S-K
SIAF cables are flexible single core silicone cables.
The construction of SIAF cables is as follows:
|Conductor||Flexible tinned copper (Class 5)|
Silicone - SIAF-GL cables
SIAF-GL cables have a similar construction to SIAF cables and have a flexible glass braid (FGB) for additional mechanical protection.
The construction of SIAF-GL is as follows:
|Conductor||Flexible tinned copper (Class 5)|
Silicone cable selection including SiHF cable
Our silicone cables, including our extended range including the SiHF cable with silicone insulation and outer sheathing, form part of our wider range of high temperature cables. Please call us for technical support with the selection of the ideal cable for your application. This may include non-silicone cables such as mineral insulated copper cables or other silicone based cables such as SIF, SID and SIHF.
