  • Mr Bhognath Shivapurapu replied to the topic 'Ceramifiable LSOH compound' in the forum.
    Hi Peter,
    I contacted AlphaGary and found a compound which will meet the requirement. I aim to run some plant trials as soon as I receive the compound.

    Thank you for your tip.

    Regards

    Bhognath

    Hello Bhognath:

    AEI is world famous for their specialty compounds All compound manufacturers then work very hard to get their particular compound specified in one or more standards.

    I have no understanding of any other compound that will pass British Standard 6387, Categories C, W & Z. This is a specification for performance requirements for cables required to maintain circuit integrity under actual fire conditions. You also indicated that this is a ceramifiable compound meaning that it is a polymer–ceramic composite.

    If this is a PVC based compound:, Alibaba.com lists a number of Chinese companies that manufacture low smoke, zero halogen compounds www.alibaba.com/halogen-free-cable-compound-manufacturers.html but you will have to do the legwork there to see if you can find one or more that fit the complete requirements.

    Likewise AlphaGary Wire and Cable products may have something. I suggest you contact them:

    AlphaGary Corporation
    170 Pioneer Drive
    Leominster, MA 01453 USA
    www.alphagary.com/

    I suggest you ask them two questions:

    1) Do they have such a compound and if not,
    2) Can they recommend a reliable North American or European compounder besides AEI

    You have made this very difficult for us because we are not going to purchase the expensive BS specification for your query and you have not given us the compound number and type of the approved AEI compound. We therefore have little understanding as to the actual polymer compound you are referencing.and how it is processed.

    Perhaps the cable is manufactured with ceramifiable silicone rubber tapes from say Shenzhen Anpin Silicone Material Co., Ltd. (Guangdong, China) www.ecvv.com/product/4334703.html or with a ceramifiable silicone rubber compound.

    We do however suspect that it is actually a ceramifiable silicone rubber compound. We have posted your question on a number of worldwide Linkdin wire and cable groups but so far there has been no reply.]

    Hi,

    Appreciate if any could tell me where I could buy subject compounds in the market besides AEI compounds. I am looking for a compound which will pass the CWZ test of BS 6387 especially so the W test.

    Thanking you in advance
