Fire Resistant Cable

Fire resistant cable is cable which will continue to function normally during and after a prolonged fire, it being assumed that the fire is of sufficient magnitude to destroy the organic material of the cable in the region of the applied flame (quoted form IEC 60331). Fire resistant cable shall meets the requirements of recommendation stated in standard IEC 60331 Fire-resisting Characteristics of Electric Cables.

Fire resistant properties can be achieved by applying Mica Glass Tape (MGT) in cable insulation construction.
