ENCLOSURES AND JUNCTION BOXES
PVC-U’s intrinsically flame retardant and weather resistant features make it an excellent reference material for electrical enclosures and junction boxes.
Specific VINIKA™ PVC-U injection grades offer impact resistance at low temperatures and provide an excellent thermoplastic solution for energy meter cabinets while being extensively exposed to UV.
VINIKA™ PVC-U is also offered for injected junction boxes together with VINIKA™ soft PVC-P for grommets.
GROMMETS AND CABLE GLAND
Thanks to excellent long term elastic recovery and rubber-like behavior providing a high coefficient of friction, TEFABLOC™ is offered for grommets and cable gland, with various flame retardant levels, matching up to 960°C glow wire testing.
For exposed material that requires a tight water resistance, TEFABLOC™ TPE range includes standard or flame retardant solutions in a wide range of hardness and with chemical compatibility to many other thermoplastics including PP and PA currently used for electrical equipment.
HOMOLOGATIONS AND COMPLIANCE
Specific flame retardant solutions including halogen free (HFFR) comply with:
