Benefit Icon Key
High Temperature Resistance
The product can withstand high temperatures (usually 150C or above) over many hours of service.
High Chemical Resistance
The performance of the product is not reduced by strong chemicals (to ensure this is the case separate testing is always recommended).
Has high strength under load.
High Resistance to UV LightWhen subjected to natural UV light, the product has a longer life span and continuous performance.
Resistant to MoistureWith the introduction of increased moisture, the performance of the product is not affected.
Low Smoke and Fumes (LSF)Product evolves low smoke and fume density in a fire situation.
Limited Fire Hazard (LFH)All the elements that could affect the product in the event of a fire, which Hellermann define as: Toxic Fume Generation, Smoke Generation, Flammability, Flame Propagation.
Toxic Fume Generation: A measure of the toxic fumes evolved on combustion of the material. Common terminology used is ‘halogen-free’.
Smoke Generation: A measure of the density of smoke evolved on combustion of the material. Common terminology used is ‘low smoke’.
A measurement of a materials resistance to burning. Test methods include flame temperature index, glow wire, and limiting oxygen index.
Flame Propagation: A measure of a materials resistance to the spread of fire. Common terminology is self-extinguishing.
High SecurityThe product has high protection against tampering, loss or can help with audit tracking.
High Abrasion ResistanceIs able to withstand abrasion whilst the performance is unaffected. When choosing a product, please refer to the information included in each section. For example, when deciding on the correct cable tie that will be used refer to relevant areas of consideration, to help in specification of the correct products.
V0 RatedHas properties of LFH, but also with very low flame propagation.
Will not conduct with electricity.
