Low smoke zero halogens are typically used for cable jacketing in the wire and cable industry. LSZH cable jacketing is composed of thermoplastic or thermoset material that emit limited smoke and no halogen upon exposed to high sources of heat. They are also known as low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) is a distinctive material used for cable sheath in the wire & cable industry. This sheath is composed of thermoplastic urethane compounds, which emit no halogens or limited smoke when exposed to high sources of heat. They provide the safety that goes beyond the acquisition costs and has a lower coefficient of friction.
Rising adoption of low smoke halogen-free cable material across various public places in order to ensure human safety since they emit zero amount of toxic and corrosive gas during combustion. Moreover, it is also used in the rail industry, wherever high voltage or track signal wires must be run into and through underground tunnel systems. Furthermore, rising construction industry across the globe is also expected to add impetus growth to the market. Growing usage of low smoke halogen-free cable in the nuclear industry is another major application area which is expected to raise the demand in the years to come. However, strict government rules and regulation upon using of LSZH cables is likely to hamper the market growth.
