Sometimes referred to has LSZH (low smoke zero halogen) power cords, zero halogen power cords are made from materials that do not release halogen when subject to high temperature or fire.
Cord Master Builds Zero Halogen Power Cords
The halogens are a group of five elements in the periodic table which are chemically related. They include:
When halogens react with metals they produce salts. These salts are corrosive in nature. Zero halogen plastics do not produce these corrosive salts in high temperature or fire environments so they are highly desirable in applications where corrosion is disastrous. Cord Master Engineering builds LSZH power cords which are ideal for these sorts of environments.
