LSZH

Low Smoke Zero Halogen

Emit No Toxic Fumes

Generate Very Little Smoke

No Corrosive or Caustic Acids

LSZH compounds are suited to areas where fire safety is an important consideration.

LSZH compounds are also referred to as Being Non Halogenated, which means the insulation and sheathing material don’t contain halogens.

We are one of the Largest Polymer Compounder in India

We have a capacity to produce these 28000 MT annually

PVC Compound for Automotive and Wires & Cables

Low-smoke zero-halogen (LSZH or LSOH) is a type of plastic used in the wire and cable industry for cable jacketing

Most network cables (CAT5, CAT6, etc.) are insulated with polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene, or thermoplastic urethane (TPU). In a fire, halogen-containing plastic releases hydrogen chloride, a poisonous gas that forms hydrochloric acid when it comes in contact with H2O. Low-smoke zero-halogen cables do not produce this toxic combination of gas, acid, and smoke when exposed to flame.

LSZH vs LSF cables

Whilst there is a common misconception that low smoke and fume (LSF) cables and LSZH cables are the same, this is not the case and any confusion between the two could be life-threatening in the event of a fire.

Unlike LSZH cables, LSF cables are manufactured using PVC compounds. If they are labelled as low smoke and fume cables it is due to the manufacturer modifying the compound with various additive in order to reduce (not eliminate) smoke and HCl emissions. However, where low smoke zero halogen cables are subject to strict standards, there are no standards governing LSF cables. As a result, LSF cables have been found to emit HCl levels in excess of 20% when burning.

As a leading rail & metro cable supplier, Fine Products is well-positioned to understand the implications involved when selecting an LSZH cable for use in any other industry. Please contact our technical team to discuss your specific requirements and our comprehensive range of LSZH cables for all applications, including building & construction, oil & gas, and marine & offshore.
