What is a halogen free cable?

Halogen free cables & wires with the insulation & sheath material SABIX®

SABIX® - thermoplastic material on a polyolefine base

This material has several outstanding characteristics. As registered trademark of SAB Bröckskes GmbH & Co. KG, SABIX® combines progressive cable technology with highest security for the user. When used properly, there is no health risk associated with SABIX®. SABIX® products are completely recyclable and can be reused after decomposition.  
Standard halogen-free cables offer a large degree of safety to humans, nature, buildings and machinery, but do have a large disadvantage - they are often too unflexible to compete with PVC in all applications. This is not the case with SABIX®. Halogen-free cables with SABIX® materials have significant technical advantages compared with PVC.
