Quadrangle has acquired a new Cross Linked 28AWG Halogen (PVC) FREE hookup wire which can be used seamlessly, and interchangeably with the much more standard and common UL1571 PVC wire. In an effort to set the curve and continue to set an example as industry innovators, Quadrangle has begun implementing this wire 2 years prior to the pending environmental, health and RoHS 2 requirements.
Inquire with our Engineering team if you would like to hear more about this new product. We can answer any questions you might have about these cables in relation to the more common PVC wire models.
What Are Halogens?
Halogens are non-metallic elements found in the periodic table. The five halogens are fluorine, chlorine, bromine, iodine and astatine. A commonly used material that contains halogens in the chemical structure is PVC. Halogens make wire and cable jackets and insulation highly flame retardant. Some naturally non-halogenated materials have halogen added because of the flame-retardant properties. When burned, halogens will emit a thick toxic smoke and become corrosive. These characteristics can cause damage to equipment and pose a safety concern.
Why Consider Halogen-Free Cable?
In recent years, halogen-free wire and cable products have seen an increase in popularity. Halogen-free wires and cables are used in consideration of issues, including fire safety, fire damage prevention and environmental impact. Halogen-free products help eliminate the need to use environmentally sensitive materials.
Quadrangle has proudly moved toward providing our customers with halogen-free products in an attempt to be more environmentally friendly and in an effort to provide our wire and cable clients with a safer alternative to the wires and cables that have been the standard in the past.
