H05BQ-F, H07BQ-F orange PUR halogen free flex

H07BQ-F and H05BQ-F orange PUR halogen free multicore cables have a tough polyurethane outer sheath and are designed for connecting, measuring, checking and control applications in the machine, plant and tool making industries. The tough PUR sheath provides increased mechanical and chemical resistance when compared to standard PVC. 

H05BQ-F (usually for conductor sizes up to 1.0mm²) has a lower voltage rating than H07BQ-F (usually 1.5mm² conductor sizes and above). Also referred to as HO5BQ-F & HO7BQ-F. 

These durable yet flexible cables are suitable for installation indoors or outdoors, in dry, moist or wet areas and in cold environments. Including where exposed to harsh mechanical strain or dragged over sharp/rough surfaces.

Halogen free cables ensure increased safety in the case of fire due to the virtual elimination of toxic HCL (hydrogen chloride) fumes if burnt.
