Zero halogen cables meet London Tube challenges

 

Pinfa: London underground transport poses particular fire safety issues: as the oldest metro system in the world, the tunnels were built small, deep and long, with very few escape exists, and are used daily by millions of people. Railway systems worldwide have strict smoke and fume standards (BS6853 UK, NF 16 101 France, DIN 5510 Germany and TS 45545-2 Europe) and the London tube requirements for low smoke and toxicity are amongst the most stringent in the world. PolyOne’s ECCOH compounds provide LSFOH (low-smoke and fume, zero halogen) fire safety solutions for cables, as well as mechanical performance (mineral oil resistance IRM 903 for 7 days at 100°C, temperature rating from -40°C to +120°C) and have been accepted for installation in the London underground system. PolyOne ECCOH also includes a range conforming to the performance requirements of the nuclear industry, including radiation and chemical resistance.
