The Habiaflame concept family of wires and custom design cables is intended for use in extreme environments where high temperature (peak temperature of 1565°C) and mechanical resistance are critical. From its original purpose of withstanding the rigours of steel production, the product range has found many uses within safety critical systems as it can continue to operate throughout a fire. Ideal for use in emergency systems and for a variety of applications in heavy industry. The latest addition to the product range, the RVH concept, improves upon the original with a completely halogen free solution.
