All Tratos silicone cables are capable of operating in extreme temperatures, from -60°C up to +180°C. This means silicone is ideal for use in places where resistance to heat is essential such as lighting appliances, catering equipment including industrial cookers and ovens, and neon sign illumination. Our range includes:
SIA: Silicone insulated with a solid conductor
SIAF: Silicone insulated with a flexible conductor
SIAF/GL: Silicone insulated with a flexible conductor and a glass fibre braid
SIHF: Multicore, silicone insulated and sheathed with a flexible conductor available with glass braid, copper screen or galvanised wire braid armour.
The PTFE, FEP & PFA range of cables is available for situations where even higher performance capabilities are necessary. Typical requirements would be exposure to chemical fumes or liquids that would render other cables useless, or where there is a need for increased cable performance to enable reduction in cable diameters bending radiuses. The temperature rating of these cables is between -100°C and +260°C, making it suitable for use in even the most extreme conditions.
