Cables frequently get into contact with oils and other chemicals during operation. Depending on the application conditions, cables must be selected according to the external influences. The oil resistance of cables can be tested in different ways. Oil resistant cables from SAB are tested and confirmed according to three standard methods. Further tests of oil resistance can be made according to the special conditions of our costumers.
In the table below you can find the arrangement and comparison of tests according to TMPU EN 50363-10-2 + VDE 0207-363-10-2, TM54 according to EN 50290-2-22 + VDE 0819-102 and TM5 according to EN 50363-4-1 + VDE 0207-363-4-1.
