DUBLIN, November 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Low Smoke Halogen-Free Cable Materials Market Research Report - Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast" report to their offering.
Low smoke halogen-free also known as low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) is a distinctive material utilized for cable sheath in the wire & cable industry. This sheath is composed of thermoplastic urethane compounds, which emit no halogens or limited smoke when exposed to high sources of heat. Halogens are highly reactive elements, which are hazardous to human, and animals. It comprise of elements like fluorine, chlorine, bromine, and iodine. Predominantly, cables are insulated with PVC or polyethylene, which contains high amounts of halogen. When exposed to flame, this halogen enclosing plastic materials discharge hydrogen chloride, hydrogen fluoride or others, which are poisonous gases. These gases produce toxic smokes that are hazardous to health. But during combustion, LSZH cables limit the emission of toxic and corrosive gases. Low smoke halogen-free cable materials is superlative for applications at public spaces where several people are confined like hospitals, commercial buildings, train and train stations, subway cars and stations airports, boats, etc. Although, these cables are more high-priced than PVC, they offer safety that goes beyond the acquisition costs. Advantageously, it has a lower coefficient of friction. Some leading companies of this market are Alpha Gary, DuPont, The Dow Chemicals, Hitachi-cable, BASF SE, Fujikura, SUMITOMO, Bayer AG, ECC, Borealis, ExxonMobil Corp., Shell Chemicals, Dewei Advanced Materials, CGN-DELTA Advanced Nuclear Materials, Shanghai Kaibo, Yadong Special Cable Material, and Zhonglian Photoelectric. Decision Databases is involved in providing research reports and company profiles in the global low smoke halogen-free cable materials market in terms of revenue and output/volume. Market drivers, opportunities and restraints are thoroughly studied which influences the market.
