Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) cables are becoming more common in situations where people may be affected by smoke and toxic fumes. This includes inadequately ventilated areas such as airplanes, ships, mass transit rail systems, military applications, central offices, and more. Unlike the common PVC-based cables used in most applications, LSZH cable jacketing is made of thermoplastic compounds that emit limited smoke and no halogen when exposed to heat. As a result, low smoke zero halogen cables minimize the amount of toxic and corrosive gas emitted during combustion. Other benefits of LSZH cables include light material weight and overall environmental impact of halogen free cabling.
