and Inhol now serve markets with high requirements in terms of low-temperature flexibility.
Furthermore bedding compound solutions. The introduction of the new CPR urges cable manufacturers to review their cable designs. Melos is committed to support the cable industry, based on 30 years of experience with halogen-free, flame-retardant compounds. In accordance with the new product regulations (CPR), priority is given to saving lives, containing the blaze, and reducing damage in the case of fire in a building. Cables play an important part in this process. Results were obtained recently by cable factories in the USA and Europe with specific bedding compounds containing an effective combination of mineral flame retardants. Test results with ceramifiable tapes have not reached the performance and price level of competitively priced, highly flame- retardant bedding compounds. Melos believes that, in the coming decades, matters such as heat release, flame propagation, toxic gases, low smoke and halogen-free will be key issues in the design Melos offers
These demands are particularly prevalent in regions with extreme climatic conditions, such as northern Russia. Potential areas of application for these cables include ships, wind turbines, conduits and oil rigs.
Their flexibilitymeans theyare suitable for use in more demanding moving applications.
The low brittleness temperature of certain Mecoline products for Arctic conditions ensures low material embrittlement, even when used in environments with intense temperatures. There are the optimum values with regard to thermal expansion, cold impact and the cold bend test, which make this Mecoline
