OLEFISTA® is composed of an olefin-based resin to which non-halogen flame retardants have been added for optimal benefit. The result is an olefin compound that is flame retardant, flexible, heat-resistant, and scratch-resistant. In addition, the product lineup includes the choice of enhanced material properties for demanding applications. For the purpose of improving thermal, chemical, and mechanical properties, silane groups can be incorporated into the resin. Post-forming, these groups can be activated with water to form cross-links which result in the improvements. OLEFISTA® is mainly used for electrical wiring --- appliance wiring, various cords, etc.
Halogen-free Flame Retaredant Resin “OLEFISTA™” Characteristics
OLEFISTA® is a compound made with an olefin resin base to which non-halogen fire retardants are added under optimal conditions. The product lineup includes the type in which post-fabrication cross-linking can be carried out with moisture exposure.
Though it is non-halogen, it has high fire retardancy, pliability, heat- resistance, and crack-resistance.
In addition, the product lineup includes a type in which post-fabrication cross-linking can be carried out with moisture exposure. This product type has sharply improved thermal, chemical, and mechanical properties. Note that no complex equipment is needed for the cross-linking.
Standards differ for various electrical wire classifications. It is possible to adjust the flame retardancy level by tailoring the types and amounts of resins in the product. An optimum can be designed to meet the requirements.
