WEB EXCLUSIVE: Huntsman Polyurethanes, The Woodlands, Texas, is highlighting a new TPU for wire and cable at K 2013 this month. Irogran A95 P 5003 is a halogen-free compound with a limited oxygen index (LOI) of more than 30, which exceeds the performance of many competing products. It has a very short self-extinguishing time, is compliant with key criteria in the European RoHS directive, and can pass the most stringent UL fire standards. It is said to be suited to use in confined spaces where cables must be tightly bunched together or where ventilation may be poor.
