A breakthrough from R & D efforts of Microtek engineers at Parwanoo plant, the special compound is practically halogen-free and has a veryhigh oxygen index. NON-TOXIC-Research shows that maximum causalities in fire happen due to chocking caused by formation of hazardous gases. PVC FlameRetardant Low Smoke and Halogen Free cables release lesser toxic gases compared to ordinary PVC cables. Smoke generation in case ofFR-LSH cables is < 60% and release of halogen content is < 20%. Our ZHLS (Zero Halogen Low Smoke) cables are practically halogen-freeand are 10 times superior to FR-LSH cables as in case of fire release of Hazardous gases is < 0.5%. This ensures that people trapped in firecan breathe easy, facilitating better chances of their rescue. Environment-Friendly — Every day thousands of tons of Hazardous Halogen gases are released in the environment resulting in depletion of theearth’s ozone layer which protects us from cancer causing UV radiations of the Sun - a phenomenon popularly known as Greenhouse Effect.Microtek ZHLS insulated industrial cables are practically halogen-free and therefore, are environment friendly. Hence, protecting not only youand your family, but also the future generations against the Green House Effect.
ENERGY EFFICIENT CABLES:Microtek Cables provide the highest level of electrical conductivity at 101% copper conductivity, exceeding the parameter indicated by the international annealed copper standard (IACS). This ensures minimum loss throughout the length of the cable which translates to 2-3% saving on the electricity bill. It also provides additional protection against voltage fluctuations.
LOW VOLTAGE DROP: Drop in voltage from point of supply to the end receiving point is called voltage drop. High voltage drop across conductor is undesirable as it reduce the supplied energy. Microtek wires and cables have adequate conductor diameter to ensure low voltage drop and higher efficiency while using an electrical equipment.
SHORT-CIRCUIT PROTECTION: Fire caused due to short-circuit is the common electrical mishap. Short circuit can be caused by the host of reason such as faulty wiring, broken insulation due to inferior quality of insulation, circuit-overload, and defective plugs, switches, cords, receptacles etc. Microtek wires ensure superior insulation and conductor characteristics to prevent short-circuit due to wiring.
HIGHER Di-ELECTERIC STRENGTH: Di-electric strength represents the magnitude of voltage endured by a test-piece of wire when a specified voltage is passed through it for a specified duration of time. Higher di-electric strength means better electrical characteristics. PVC compound used for manufacturing Microtek Cables offers high di-electric strength to prevent electric breakdown in PVC.
HIGHER CONVECTION OF HEAT: Convection is the flow of heat from hot to cool region. Lubricants like wax are required to prevent PVC-melt from sticking to hot extruder surface, which ensures a good heat transfer within the wire resulting in higher convective heat dissipation capability.
WATERPROOF AND UV RESISTANT: In many building, construction concrete may itself not be water-tight. Contact with water causes deterioration of the cable's electrical and mechanical properties. Exposure of cable polymer to UV radiation induces chemical processes that causes polymer damage like chalking, loss of impact or tensile strength and a host of other chemical changes. All this can greatly reduce the service life of the cable and expose people to electrical shocks. Microtek has developed a high-quality thermoplastic insulation compound made of single carbon-bond polymer chain. This makes Microtek cables impermeable to water, ultra violet (UV) radiation and chemicals, thereby significantly enhancing the life and safety of Microtek cables.
