Sometimes low smoke zero halogen is referred to as low smoke halogen free. No matter what you call it, Cord Master Engineering is the expert at building power cords and data cables using those materials.

Low Smoke Halogen Free Polymers

It is our expertise working with low smoke zero halogen polymers that sets us apart. Why are LSHF cords and cables important?

“Most network cables are insulated with polyethylene, PVC or thermoplastic polyurethane. In a fire, a chlorine-containing plastic material releases hydrogen chloride, a poisonous gas that forms hydrochloric acid when it comes in contact with water. Designated halogen-free cables, on the other hand, do not produce a dangerous gas/acid combination when exposed to flame. However, gases produced by all burning materials—whether LSZH or not—are extremely toxic.”
