IMPLEMENTATION OF HALOGEN-FREE RAILWAY CABLES
Due to continuous changes of requirements regarding railway cables MANEX started to prepare the implementation of new technologies. As a result of development and research works MANEX created in 2010 a new product which was tested by the Materials and Construction Components Test Laboratory of the Polish Railway Institute. The positive test results were completed by granting to MANEX by the Polish Railway Institute the Certificate of Compliance with the PN-K 02511:2000 Standard for two types of cables: MXC 1000HF and MXR 1000HF. Thanks to that MANEX was able to start manufacturing of halogen-free cables for railway stock.
Over the recent years MANEX has been continuously introducing new products and technology innovations in order to maintain its well-established standing in the cable and wire producers market.
In 2011 and 2012 MANEX started preparations to obtain the certification of two ˂HAR> types of cables. After completion of very tough audit of documentation and production and measuring capabilities Manex obtained in 2012 the Certificate of Compliance with the new PN-EN 50525-1:2011 Standard for two types of cables: H05V-K and H05V2-K.
In 2013 MANEX started manufacturing of halogen-free cables type H05Z-K and H07Z-K as well as halogen-free cables class C for automotive industry according to ISO 6722. Currenly the works are continued on implementation of halogen-free cables for construction and building industries with the insulation made of porous plastics and with a flame-retardant sheath.
