Suitable where PVC-insulated cables becomes brittle due to high temperature varaiations.
Silicone-insulated single cores are preferably used in the metallurgical industry,
steel works, hot-rolling mills, coking plants, foundries, etc. The insulation consists
of silicone rubber. lt is resistant to vegetable and animal fat, many types of oil
and diluted acids. No decompositon occurs when exposed to alcohole, alkaline solutions,
etc. The insulation is resistant to oxygen and ozone. Should the cable burn, an insulation
silicon dioxide layer will remain an the conductor to render it short circuit proof.
