The Clear Choice
Flexible Flat Cables for
Low Smoke and
Zero Halogen Requirements
LSZH Cables
LSZH Cable Done Right
Standard LSZH cables tend to be sti due to low smoke, ame retardant
and low toxicity additives. Cicoil’s Ultra Flex LSZH cables are the perfect
alternative. Our proprietary Flexx-Sil™ engineered elastomer jacket-
ing material naturally exhibits extreme ammability resistance and low
smoke attributes without extra additives, and Flexx-Sil™ is halogen-free.
Cicoil’s highly exible LSZH cables have been successfully tested & certi-
ed by a UKAS Lab for smoke, toxicity, ammability and halogen content.
Cicoil LSZH Cables are ideal for use in environments that require safety
and high- performance reliability. Applications for use include:

What are Halogens?
Halogens include the ve non-metallic
elements Astatine (At), Bromine (Br), Chlo-
rine (Cl), Fluorine (F) and Iodine (I), which
form Group 7 in the Periodic Table of
Elements. The term Halogen means salt
producing or “salt forming”. When any of
these 5 elements are combined with metals,
they produce binary “salts, such as calcium
uoride, sodium chloride (table salt}, silver
bromide and potassium iodide.
Why are Halogens
Dangerous?
Typically, electrical cables manufactured
with PVC, Neoprene, Chlorinated Polyeth-
ylene (CPE), FEP and PTFE/Teon®, utilize
the addition of halogens as a ame retar-
dant and to improve high temperature
resistance. However, when cables contain-
ing halogens are burned they produce
toxic fumes and corrosive gases which sear
the eyes, nose, mouth and throat to cause
severe respiratory damage, disorientation
and even death. These gases when exposed
to water (e.g., sprinkler systems, humidity,
rain) produce dangerous and destructive
uids such as hydrochloric and hydrouoric
acids that can destroy expensive electronic
equipment and computer systems.

The Flexx-Sil
Advantage
Constructed with its proprietary Flexx-Sil™ jacketing material, Cicoil’s
high performance at cables listed in this brochure are Low Smoke Zero
Halogen (LSZH). The ultra-pure material by nature is ame retardant and
combines the best aspects of silicone rubber, such as exibility, durabil-
ity and extreme temperature exposure, but without any contaminating
substances.
Due to its unique mixture of materials, Flexx-Sil™ does not ignite easily,
and if ignited, will not produce black smoke or toxic gas during combus-
tion. The Crystal-Clear, noncorrosive jacket does not contain color addi-
tives, plasticizers, CFC’s or halogens, which are typically found in other
cable jacketing materials.
Cicoil has been a leader in designing and manufacturing high performance cable assemblies for over sixty years. The company’s
Patented Flexx-Sil™ Flat Cable Technology provides high exibility, extremely long life, and they can withstand temperature extremes from
−65 degrees to +260 degrees Celsius. Cicoil’s at cables are used in thousands of demanding applications, including aircraft fuel control cells,
semiconductor automation, and the International Space Station. Cicoil designs and manufactures its Flexx-Sil™ jacketed cables and cable
assemblies in an automated facility in Valencia, California. Cicoil’s quality assurance system is certied to the ISO 9001 (AS9100) standard.
Visit www.cicoil.com for more information, or call 661-295-1295 to speak to an application engineer.
What Makes it Halogen-free?
Electrical and electronic cable products are
considered Halogen-free if they are manu-
factured without the use of the ve salt
forming elements, in the raw materials or
the nished cable products. Cicoil Flexx-
Sil® -jacketed cables contain no astatine,
bromine, iodine, uorine or chlorine. So,
while exhibiting ame- and combustion-
resistance, they remain 100% Halogen-free.
Cicoil’s LSZH Cables are extremely durable, perform very well in extreme
temperature conditions (−65°C to +165°C), meet the Air Cleanliness
Requirements of ISO 146441 and exceed the outgassing requirements of
ASTM E595. The non-particulate generating cable is Class 1 Clean Room
Rated, RoHS & REACH Compliant, and is cured continuously, with no
debris or material contamination in an automated, climate-controlled
environment. In addition, the cable jacket passes UL/CSA VW-1, FT 1 & FT
2, UL 94V-0 ammability testing, HL1 & HL2 levels of EN 45545-1 and FAA
burn testing.
The ultra-pure Flexx-Sil™ jacket oers 100% transparency, is self-heal-
ing from small punctures and will not deform or prematurely age due
to prolonged exposure to sunlight, high heat, ozone, UV light, radia-
tion, humidity, fungus, acid, water, sodium chloride, vibration and
many chemicals.

LSZH VS / p1of1 / 2020-07-22
Non-LSZH Cables Cicoil LSZH Cables
Common jacketing materials like PVC, Neoprene, and PTFE/Teon™
require the addition of halogens to reduce ammability. In cases,
however, where combustion does occur, burning halogens result in
dense smoke and corrosive/toxic gases.
Cicoil’s Flexx-Sil™ cable jacketing is inherently ame resistant and
uses NO HALOGENS. Flexx-Sil™ is our proprietary elastomeric cable
encapsulation material that is naturally resistant to combustion, and
if ignited under extreme conditions, does not produce black smoke
or toxic gas or corrosive substances.
Cables containing halogens present a serious risk to any populated
environment. If exposed to water after being burned—as in the case
of the use of re suppression systems or even humidity in the air—
halogen-containing cable/wire jacketing will release dangerous or
even deadly chemicals such as hydrochloric acid.
A safer choice for all environments, but essential when the safety
of human life is a top priority, as in highly populated facilities,
mass transit, and crewed vehicles. In the event of a re, the danger
to individuals will not be compounded by toxic, halogen-based
airborne chemicals.
The microcircuitry aboard most electronic equipment is particularly
susceptible to the acidic moisture produced by materials without
LSZH classication.
Mitigates damage done to equipment during a re. Flexx-Sil™
does not release the corrosive chemicals that eat away at delicate
electronics and computer systems.
Flame and combustion retardation additives used on common cable
and wire jacketing typically stiffens the material, making the product
less flexible and compliant, and susceptible to a shorter functional life
in motion applications.
Even with LSZH classication, Flexx-Sil™ jacketing provides extreme
exibility, is 100% transparent, self-heals small punctures, and
remains very durable within stressful environmental conditions.
Industry standard cables are infused with color additives that contain
contaminants and don't allow for inspection of the cable for possible
wire shorts and safety issues.
Crystal-clear jacketed cables oer 100% transparency, which allows
for quick, safe inspection of cables in just about any application.
LSZH Cables from Other Manufacturers Cicoil LSZH Cables
Typically, LSZH cables require ller materials to make them low
smoke and zero halogen. This makes the jacket less resistant to
chemicals, water, and other environmental stresses as compared to
non-LSZH cables, and may even inhibit the cables' mechanical and
electrical characteristics.
Cicoil’s Flexx-Sil™ jacketing material is ame retardant by nature,
completely non-toxic, and requires no additives to achieve zero
halogen. It also oers excellent resistance to harsh environments,
water, acid and many chemicals.
The materials used to make the cable LSZH limits the exibility of
the cable and impedes its performance in continuous motion and
robotics applications.
Cicoil’s at cables are designed to prevent wire breakage, jacket
punctures, and operational failure when exposed to tight bending,
exing, mechanical stress, and harsh environments.
The outer jacket of LSZH cables may crack during installation or tight
bends, so lubricants are recommended to prevent jacket damage.
Cicoil’s unique cable jacket requires minimal maintenance thanks to
its self-healing properties and integrity through long term exposure
to tight bending, conned spaces, and even vibration.

Cable Jacketing – Simply Superior
Cicoil invented the ribbon cable in 1956, and we have continually perfected and improved our technology to make high performance
at cables. After years of extensive R&D, Cicoil achieved a breakthrough in the method and materials used in making our exible at
cables. In combination with our patented extrusion process, Cicoil developed an exclusive material which is ideally suited to high ex,
high performance at cable applications. This unique material is called Flexx-Sil™, and it combines the best aspects of the silicone rubber
polymer with our exclusive extrusion process, to make the most advanced cable jacketing material available in the marketplace.
Flexx-Sil™ cable jacketing provides the following high performance features:
Rubber Hardness — The Shore Scale
Physical and Chemical Properties
physical and mechanical, per ZZ-R-765E
Temperature Extremes – Operates at temperatures from -65°C to
+260°C. Also stays exible in temps as low as -100°C.
Flexibility – Has the natural exibility of silicone rubber, which is
more than twice as exible as PVC or PTFE insulation.
Crystal Clear – Flexx-Sil
is crystal clear, and virtually translucent,
clearly showing the purity and the cleanliness of the material
Low OutgassingThe purity of Flexx-Sil™ means that it has very
low outgassing characteristics, as the molecular bond is extremely
strong, and the extrusion process results in virtually zero impurities.
Durable – Flexx-Sil
has a Durometer of 65 (Shore A), and can be
provided in a SuperTu
version with a Durometer of 85 (Shore A).
Zero ParticulatesThe purity of Flexx-Sil™ results in a Class 1
Cleanroom rating, as the insulation material has zero particulates
Halogen Free – Flexx-Sil™ jacketing is 100% Halogen Free
Water/Chemical/UV Resistant – Flexx-Sil
jacketing is water proof
(including immersion), is resistant to most chemicals, and can
operate for years in intense UV and sunlight conditions.
